Page Breaks in Word

There may be times when you need to start a new page in an existing Word document. Many people just keep hitting the Enter key until the cursor scrolls down to the new page.

Word lets you insert a Page Break in a document. This ends the current page but starts a new, consecutive page. You can use either the menu commands or quick keys from the keyboard; each time-saving method is described below.

Here’s How

From the menu

  • Click where you want to start a new page.
  • On the Insert menu, click Break.
  • Click Page break.
  • Click OK.

From the Keyboard

Instead of using menu commands, simply press the CTRL and ENTER keys together.
