If you have a document with a lot of pages, and one page in particular that you want to delete, how do you go about doing it? In this blog post we will show how you can remove the unwanted page from your Word document. All you need to do is follow these steps:
How to delete a page in Word that has text and graphics in it
- Open the Word document that you want to delete a page from
- Choose how many pages back up do you want to go, and click on it. This will take you one step backwards in time. Now choose how far forward do you want to jump and click on it. You should now be at your desired location in your timeline where the page you want to delete is
- Double click on the page and it will be highlighted
- Press the Delete key on your keyboard to remove the page from your document.
How to delete a blank page in Word
If you are struggling with how to delete a page in Word, this is how it can be done. All that is needed for you to do is follow these steps:
- Open the document where ever your unwanted blank page may be located
- Click on the Home tab at the top of your screen and click on Delete in order to open the Delete Page dialog box
- Check the box that says “Delete pages after blank” and click on OK
- Your unwanted page will now be deleted from your Word document.
If None of that Works, Look at Your Section Breaks
In Word, you may use page break locations to create a new page. The Bottom of the Page and Next Page, Odd Page, and Even Page section breaks can lead to the creation of a new page in Word. If your empty page appears at the end of your document and there is a section break there, simply place your cursor before the section.
The curly braces and semicolons, as well as the dashes, are also marked by a line. This can be difficult to read, so I recommend that you make these elements larger than they appear in Microsoft Word.
To change the section breaks to a Continous section break, go to the Document menu and select Section Breaks. Then open each of the boxes for a note and choose Continuous from the drop-down menu.
