How to delete a page in a word document

If you want to learn how to delete a page in a word document, this short and quick article will give you all the required details to help you delete a page in a word document.


How to delete a page in a word document

Follow these steps to delete:

To remove text, images, or empty paragraphs from a page, select the material you want to remove and hit Delete.

On Windows/macOS:

  • Click or tap anywhere on the page you wish to remove and then press CTRL+G (Option+⌘+G for macOS)
  • Type\ page in the Enter page number box.
  • Select Close after pressing Enter on your keyboard.
  • Verify that a content page is chosen, then press the Delete key on your keyboard.

Deleting a blank page:

  • At the end of a document, Word contains a non-deletable end-paragraph that is occasionally stretched out to a new, blank page.
  • Making the end-paragraph fit onto the preceding page is one technique to remove the page. Making the end-paragraph very tiny (1 point) is the most sure-fire method:
  • To show paragraph markers, use Ctrl+Shift+8 (⌘+8 on a Mac).
  • The paragraph mark should be selected.
  • Select 01 from the Font size drop-down menu, then press Enter.
  • Font size is set to 1
  • The paragraph now fits on the previous page, eliminating the need for the extra blank page.
  • To hide the paragraph markers, press Ctrl+Shift+8 again (⌘+8 on a Mac).
  • If the paragraph still doesn’t fit on the previous page, you may reduce the bottom margin (Layout tab > Margins > Custom Margins, and set the bottom margin to 0.3 inches or less).
