How to Add a Blank Page to an Existing Document

By Alan Okpechi

Inserting a blank page into an existing document may be necessary to add more information or to allow another user to add, edit, or make corrections. Microsoft Word allows you to accomplish this task in an efficient and easy manner. Adding a page break also allows a blank page to be created.

Step 1

Open Microsoft Word and select a point in your document where you wish the blank page to be added. The page will be inserted directly before where the cursor is placed on the document.

Step 2

Click on "Insert" found in the main menu bar.

Step 3

Click on the "Pages" group and select "Blank Page." This will insert a blank page to your existing document.

Step 4

Click on "Insert" on the main menu bar to insert a cover page. Click on the "Pages" group and select "Cover Page." This will insert a blank page to the beginning of the existing document.

Step 5

Press the "Ctrl + Enter" buttons together to insert a page break into your existing document. This process also inserts a blank page without having to use your mouse.
