How to Delete a Blank Page From Word

By Gregory Hamel

Microsoft Word is a popular word processing program that comes with the Microsoft Office software package. One of the main functions of Word is allowing users to print out documents that they compose. Sometimes documents may have blank pages within the body or at the end of the document that you may wish to remove to save paper when printing as well as to improve the formatting of the document.

Deleting Extra Spaces

Step 1

Open the Word document and navigate to the blank page you wish to remove. Place your cursor at the end of the last paragraph before the section you wish to remove and press the down arrow on your keyboard once.

Step 2

Press the "Delete" key repeatedly until all undesired space is removed.

Step 3

Press "Ctrl+Z" if you accidentally delete something you don't want to.

Step 4

Save your document.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you perform an action in word that doesn't have the desired effect, you can hold the control key and then press "z" key to quickly undo it.
  • Deleting blank paragraph rows will move any content located in pages below the blank page up and down. You can add and remove blank paragraphs with enter and backspace respectively to space content the way you want.
