How to Delete a Blank Page in The Middle of A Word Document
If you are working with a long Word document and you are getting ready to present it or print it, it is a good idea to check to see if there are any blank pages and if there is an additional page at the end.
You may accomplish this by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + 8, or you can go to the Home tab and click the icon that looks like a paragraph.
This combination of keys displays paragraph markers () at the end of each paragraph and at the beginning of the extra blank page. More specifically, the paragraph markers appear whenever you hit the ENTER key and at the beginning of each blank line.
To get rid of these additional pages, select the paragraph markers using your mouse or trackpad, then press the DELETE button on your keyboard. You can get rid of any of the markings that are still there by pressing the BACKSPACE key.
You can also get rid of the blank page (or pages) if you have the patience to do so by navigating to the page(s) in question and repeatedly pressing the BACKSPACE key until the paragraph markers are removed.
