Duplicate pages in Word manually.

Word doesn’t have an automatic page duplication feature, but you can still do the job by hand. Follow these steps to duplicate a page:

  1. Launch Word and open your document.
  2. Highlight the text you want to duplicate by clicking and dragging with your mouse.
  3. Select Home > Copy or press Ctrl + C on your keyboard to copy the text.
  4. Select the bottom of the page you just copied.
  5. Select Insert > Blank Page to create an empty page.
  6. Select the empty page.
  7. Select Home > Paste or press Ctrl + V to paste the copied text onto the page.

If you need to create multiple duplicate pages, you can repeat steps 4-7 as many times as necessary.
