Deleting Blank Pages from Word 2013!

This is a question I get quite frequently.  Users get very frustrated that they cannot easily delete a page.  Here’s how you do it!

You can click delete at the end of the page before the blank page.

If that doesn’t work go up to the home tab and look for the paragraph symbol which looks like this: ¶  It will show you all the paragraphs or spaces you have put into the document that could be causing the extra page. If there are lots of spaces or paragraphs that are blank, select them all and delete them.

If that your page still won’t delete then go to the view tab and look for the navigation pane choice and select it.   The Navigation pane will pop up on the left-hand side of the screen.  Scroll through your pages and find the blank page.   Select that page and either hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Here’s a video I created:

Always look for hidden tables too!  Those mess up people too!

However I have to say, after writing this article, I found a video by Ninja 365 that is way better at showing you this.

I have to defer to their wisdom on this one.  AWESOME VIDEO:  Link Here—>  Ninja365!
