By adding a page break in your Microsoft Word document, you decide exactly where a page ends and a new one begins. Here’s how to insert and remove page breaks in Word.
How to Do a Page Break in Word
To insert a page break in your document, first, open your document in Microsoft Word.
In the document, place your cursor where the new page should begin. Everything to the right of your cursor will go on to the new page.
In Word’s ribbon at the top, click the “Insert” tab.
On the “Insert” tab, in the “Pages” section to the extreme left, click “Page Break.”
Word will add a page break to the selected location in your document. All your text that was to the right of your cursor has now moved to the new page.
And you are all set.
Remove a Page Break in Word
To delete a manually added page break from your document, open your document with Microsoft Word.
When the document opens, in Word’s ribbon at the top, click the “Home” tab.
On the “Home” tab, in the “Paragraph” section, click the “Show/Hide” option (a paragraph icon).
On your document where you had added a page break, you will see a “Page Break” item. To delete this page break, double-click “Page Break” and then press the Delete key on your keyboard.
And that’s it. Word has removed the selected page break from your document. Enjoy!
If you use Google Docs, you can also easily add page breaks to your documents.
