Insert a blank page

To add a blank page to your document, click where you want the new page to begin, and then on the Insert tab, click Blank Page.

The Blank Page icon is highlighted on the Insert tab

Tip: Another option when you need a little space is to add a page break. A page break won't insert a blank page but it will move whatever comes after the break to the top of the next page.

Find blank pages

If you’re formatting a complex document, you can use the Navigation Pane to quickly scroll through the document to find blank pages.

  • Click View > Navigation Pane > Pages.

    Pages is highlighted on the Navigation Pane

Note: To remove a blank page from your document, see Delete a blank page.
