There are many reasons why you would consider removing a page on word. It is important that you know all the procedures for removing a page on word. First, when you are typing, and you realize that your content is not flowing, you’ll have to erase it. What if it is a whole page full of text? Many people often go to the last word on the page and continuously tap on the backspace key until all the content is erased.
Furthermore, it could be a page without any content on it. The same method also applies to pages that are empty. However, don’t you think tapping the backspace key too many times is tedious? In addition, using such a method makes you look computer illiterate. Imagine a situation whereby you are making a presentation in front of a whole class or panel, and you realize that a page was accidentally added. You will need an efficient solution that completely eradicates the problem of interfering with the format and structure of your work.
Removing a page on word that won’t delete
There is nothing more irritating than removing a page on word, but it just won’t budge! Just existing without being added intentionally is frustrating enough.

Removing a page on word using find and replace
A lot of people do not know that the find and replace tool has numerous functions. Did you know that you can also use the tool to highlight or delete a page? The common function of find and replace is searching a word and replacing it with another, literally finding and replacing! But the function is also useful when removing a page on word. Place the cursor on the page you want to remove and type Ctrl + G to open the dialog box. Go to enter page and type ‘\page’. This will take you to the page which will be highlighted already, and click delete. (image)
