How to Count Pages in WordPad

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

Open your document in WordPad.

Step

Click the WordPad Menu button in the top left.

Step

Hover over "Print" and select "Print Preview."

Step

Click "Next Page" until you reach the end of the document.

Step

Look in the lower left corner for the total page count of the document.
