Deleting pages on word is a very simple process, but if you do not know how to do it, then you might encounter some challenges. What will you do when you realize that you made the mistake of including a whole page of unnecessary content in your work? You might think that undoing your activities on word will be the easiest solution. But then that would require you to retype the subsequent pages all over again.


There are a variety of methods you can use to delete pages on word. Nonetheless, all of them are effective and have a similar outcome. If one or two or more rogue pages are interrupting the flow of your perfectly honed document, don’t get frustrated. Here is an extensive process of getting rid of unwanted pages.


How do you delete pages on word document with graphics and text

There is a very big difference between deleting blank pages and deleting pages with graphics and text on word. This is a precise step-by-step guide on how you can remove an unwanted page with content.

First, select and highlight the page you want to delete. Imagine deleting pages that you did not intend to remove. So, you can either use the Go to shortcut function by clicking CTRL + G to find the page or scroll to that page. Once you find the page, highlight all the content on it. For instance, if you want to delete page 3 of your document, just type \page in the Enter page number section in the Go to dialog box. (image)

Second, this is where you now get to erase the page. There is no built-in function in word for deleting pages. But the process is now easy since you have already highlighted the page. Ensure that the page you have chosen and highlighted is the right one, then hit the DELETE key. (image)

How do you delete pages on word that are blank

Word, just like any other text editing program, will sometimes create blank pages at the end of your word document for no reason at all. As much as you can just print it that way and ignore the last page, submitting a soft copy to your boss or institution isn’t really a good idea. This is what you need to do to get rid of that blank page.

First, go to the navigation pane box on the view tab and tick the box; a column will appear on the left. (image)

Second, go to pages on the column that opens up on the left side of word. Scroll to the blank page you want to remove and click on it. (image)

Press CTRL + SHIFT + 8 to show paragraph markers and then highlight them. (image)

Go to the font size box in the home tab and type 1, then hit the ENTER key. The paragraph marker will fit in size and eliminate the empty page. Once you are set, just click CTRL + SHIFT + 8 again to remove the markers. (image)
