Unlike many other word processing software titles, WordPad has no visual indicator as to where one page ends and the next page begins. When you are working in a WordPad document, you cannot see a total page count or insert a page break. However, there is a way for you to check the total page count of a WordPad document without having to print it out in its entirety.


Step 1

Open your document in WordPad.
