How to Split Pages in MS Word


Microsoft Word documents begin as a single page on the screen -- the software automatically creates a one-page document for new projects. Depending on project requirements, that single Word page can go from one to one thousand, anywhere above or in-between with just a little typing. Word automatically splits pages when it senses text right above or below a margin, but users may split pages anywhere they want. Splitting a page in Word is called forcing a page break and is performed with a quick maneuver.

  • Open Word to create a new document. To split pages in an existing Microsoft Word document instead, click the "File" tab. Click the "Open" option. Click "Browse." Navigate to the document and double-click its file name, opening it in a new Word window.

  • Press the "Page Down" key on the keyboard or scroll to the area of the document where you want to create a page split.

  • Position the cursor after the letter or punctuation where the page should be split. Press the "Ctrl" and "Enter" keys together to force a page break or split the page into two pages.
