How To Delete A Page In Word
It’s pretty quick and easy to remove a page in Microsoft Word on your Windows PC or Mac. In fact, there are different ways that you can remove a page with content or a blank page in Word with just a few clicks.
In today’s post, we are about to share with you two of the easiest ways to remove unwanted Word pages. First, let’s find out how to delete a page in Word that has content!
How to delete a page with content in Microsoft Word
Here are the detailed instructions on how to delete a page in Word that is filled with content (like text and/or graphics).
Step 1. In order to delete a page, you have to go to that page and select it first.
You can go to the page that you want to delete either by manually scrolling to that page or using the Go to function. To use the Go to function, press Ctrl + G on your Windows PC or Option + Command + G on your Mac and follow the instructions to get to the page you want to remove.
Step 2. When you get to the page with the content that you want to delete, simply click anywhere on that page.
Step 3. Now, select all the content on that page by opening the Go to function (by pressing Ctrl + G on Windows or Option + Command + G on macOS), typing \page, then clicking on "Go to" followed by "Close." Now, you’ll see that all the content on the page is selected.
Another method that lets you select all the content on the page (that you want to delete) is to use your cursor to drag through all the available content on that page to select it all. It’s important to note that if you are selecting a page that is not fully filled with content, make sure that you drag the cursor past the end of the content. This way, you can select all the blank parts of that page, too.
Step 4. Take a few seconds to verify that the content of the page you want to remove is all selected. Now, press Delete on your keyboard to delete that page.
How to delete a page in Word: Remove a black page
Deleting a blank page in Microsoft Word is pretty different from deleting a page filled with content. And here are details about how to delete a page in Word that is totally blank:
Step 1. Before deleting a black page on your document, you have to find and locate that page first. One of the quickest methods to locate blank page(s) is by opening up the Navigation pane.
In order to open up the Navigation pane, you will need to click on the View tab on your toolbar. Here, make sure that you tick the Navigation Pane option. As soon as you see the sidebar on the left of the screen, simply select the Pages option to view all the pages available in your Word document.
Step 2. In the Navigation pane, simply click on the blank page that you want to delete.
Step 3. Now, press Delete on your keyboard to delete that page.
If there are any other blank pages that you want to remove, continue selecting them one by one (in the Navigation pane) and pressing the Delete key.
