How to delete a blank page in Word

In this post we will see how we delete a blank page in Microsoft word. It is a simple process, but if you are not aware of this, you will be getting tired of keep on trying our normal delete button. After you try a lot only, you will come to know normal delete button won’t work. To be frank, I too crossed this situation so many times, I tried to delete by selecting the blank page and delete. It didn’t work. then I got a solution, that worked. So I thought of sharing with you that. I hope you will like it.

Sample Word Doc

To test this, we need a word document in which second page is blank. You can see a word document sample below.

Now we need to follow the following steps.

Step 1

Go to view tab from the menu and click on the Draft

You can see that in the above image.

Step 2

If you do first step, your word document becomes as follows.

Now you need to paragraph menu from Home tab.

Step 3

Click on the icon from paragraph menu.

Once you click on that icon, you will get some non printing characters in your word document. Click on the last in your word document and press delete.

Now go back to your home tab and click on show/hide menu and then go to View tab and click print layout option.

That is all now, I hope your blank page is deleted now.
