How to Get Rid of the Second Page of a MS Word Form

A Microsoft Word form can help you gather information from users. You can draw people’s attention to a certain section on your form by bolding or centering your words, so they can fill in important questions. If the second page of your form is blank or includes little content, you can get rid of the page by shrinking your document or deleting the extra space.

Choose “Ignore” if Word warns you that it needs to fix the margins. The second page on your form should now disappear.
