How to Delete an Extra Page in Word 2007

By Filonia LeChat

Microsoft Word, the word processing component of every version of the Microsoft Office Suite, offers the ability to create far more than just a one-page document with words on it. As you work in Word 2007, you're able to take advantage of multiple-page templates for newsletters, guides, programs and booklets, or create your own from scratch. Word allows you to completely customize every document, such as reducing pages by deleting unnecessary ones, with just a couple of clicks.

Step 1

Open Word 2007, click the "File" menu and click "Open." Browse to the document with the extra page and double-click the file name, which opens the Word file.

Step 2

Scroll to the unwanted page and click your cursor anywhere on the page, such as in the middle of a sentence or, if the page is blank, on the top-left of the page.

Step 3

Click the "Home" tab at the top of the Word screen and pull down the "Find" menu on the right side of the toolbar. Click the "Go To" option.

Step 4

Type a backslash ("\") and the word "Page" into the "Enter Page Number" box: "\page" and click the "Go To" button. Any text or graphics on the page become highlighted.

Step 5

Click "Close" to close the "Find and Replace" window, then press the "Delete" key on the keyboard. The entire page is deleted. If you had additional pages in your Word document after this one, they all move up.
