How to Delete an Unwanted Page in Microsoft Word

Important Note: If a section break is causing a blank page in the middle of a document, removing the section break can cause formatting issues. If you intended for the content that follows that point to have different formatting, then keep the section break. You don’t want to delete the section break because that would cause the pages before the section break to take on the formatting of the pages after the section break. You can, however, change the section break to a Continuous section break, which will preserve the formatting changes without inserting a blank page.

Next Page, Odd Page, and Even Page section breaks may create a new page in Word. If your empty page occurs at the end of your document and you have a section break there, you can place your cursor directly before the section break and press Delete to delete it. That should remove the blank page.

That should remove your blank page without affecting your formatting.

So there is a blank page either in the middle or at the end of your Word document that cannot seem to be deleted. This is a very common and often frustrating occurrence that many users face while creating content within Microsoft Word. Sure, you can choose to print only select pages, but that doesn’t exactly solve the problem.
