How to delete a page in Word on a Macbook.

Discover the easy steps for removing a page within a Word document by locating and deleting the page break.

Proper formatting is essential when creating a document with a professional look and feel — but a polished document isn’t the only benefit of good formatting. Dedicated page breaks help to create new pages within your document so you can organize text in a clear manner and prevent any extra paragraphs or wonky alignments. And if you find that you no longer need a particular page — it’s no bother — simply delete it with a few simple steps.

Steps for deleting a page in Word.

Sometimes, when working on a Word document on a Macbook, you may need to remove an extra page or two. This can happen when multiple people edit and collaborate on the same document, often in professional or educational situations. To delete a whole page, you need to delete the page break. To begin, enter the formatting view and then follow the steps below:

  1. Press Command + 8. This will show all the page breaks between individual pages within your document. You’ll also see paragraph breaks in this view.
  2. Select the page you want to delete. A shaded line indicates where a particular page ends. Drag your cursor over this page break to select it.
  3. Press delete. This will effectively delete the page. You may need to backspace a few times if any extra blank spaces remain.

You can also repeat this process to delete any unnecessary paragraph breaks. Paragraph symbols indicate these breaks. To exit from the formatting view, press Command + 8 again. Once your document is ready, you can convert it to a PDF for safekeeping or easy sharing with others.
