Delete a page in Microsoft Word with text
Delete an empty page

When we create a new document and especially when it extends too long, it is normal that we end up with unnecessarily long white spaces, something that happens a lot when we use tables and graphs. Luckily, it's easy to delete a page from Microsoft Word , even necessary. Blank spaces end up taking up up to a full page, which is not ideal when presenting our work..

Word provides us with a wide variety of interesting functions, such as dividing a page into several parts, moving a table or writing fractions. The problem is that it does not have a dedicated function to delete a page, although we can do it with two simple tricks.

Delete a page in Microsoft Word with text

The first thing we will have to do is select the page we want to delete manually by scrolling to it. Once we find the page, we will have to highlight all the texts or elements found on it. We can do this easily by pressing Ctrl + A..

Now, we are simply going to have to proceed to press the Delete button on our keyboard. Additionally, we can cut them using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + X. This way all the texts should disappear, which will make the page disappear. There is no option to delete a page specifically.

Delete an empty page

We will have to find the page and blank spaces from the navigation panel. To do this, we go to the View tab at the top and we will have to make sure that the navigation box is checked..

Once the left sidebar appears, we will click on Pages to view all the pages of the document. So we will scroll through these pages until we find the one we want to delete and we will double click on it.

Let's enable paragraph marks by pressing Ctrl + Shift + 8 on Windows or Command + 8 on macOS. We will click on the marks to highlight them.

Once we have the brands highlighted, we will have to go to the Home tab, enter 1 in the font size section and press Enter for the changes to be applied.

In this way we will be able to reduce the paragraphs and adjust them on this page. Then we'll have to go back to the same page and press Ctrl + Shift + 8 to hide the paragraph marks.
