Insert a Page Break

Microsoft Word help gives you another page so you can keep going when you fill up one page. But what if you're impatient and want to start a new page right away.

Whatever you do, don't press Enter over and over until you fill up the page. Instead, create a page break.

To create a page break, follow these steps:

1. Place the cursor at the position where the page break should be.

(Make sure that it is on a new line.)
2. Press CTRL + ENTER


Choose Insert ► Break.
