How to Tell How Many Pages Are on a Wordpad

By Daniel Hatter

WordPad is a basic word-processing program that comes pre-installed with recent versions of Windows operating systems, including Windows 7 and Vista. With more capabilities than the NotePad program, which is also included in Windows operating systems, WordPad allows users to change basic settings such as font types and styles, paragraph options, as well as insert images and drawings. If you plan on printing your WordPad document, there is only one way to find out how many pages are in it before you print it.

Step 1

Open your WordPad document.

Step 2

Click on the main "WordPad" button at the top-left.

Step 3

Hover over "Print" and then select "Print preview" when the menu expands.

Step 4

Press the "Down" arrow key on your keyboard to scroll through the pages. Page numbers will be displayed at the bottom of each page.

Step 5

Press and hold the "Down" arrow key to scroll through the pages quickly. When the pages stop scrolling, you have reached the end of the WordPad document --- take note of the final page number if desired.
