How To Delete A Page In Google Docs

If you’re creating a document in Google Docs, you may find yourself needing to delete a page. Whether you’ve added an extra page by mistake or you simply want to remove an existing page, it’s easy to do.

Sometimes Google Docs forces an extra page at the end of your document due to existing formatting rules.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to delete a page in Google Docs. We’ll also explain what to do if you need to skip a particular page when printing a document.

How to Remove a Page in Google Docs

Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to remove a page in google docs.

Step 1

First, enter the Google Docs document which you want to delete a page from.

In this example, we want to delete the second page of our multi-page document.

Step 2

Place your cursor on the first line of the page you want to delete.

Step 3

Hold the Shift key and click on the end of the last line of the page. This will effectively select all text and elements in the current page.

Step 4

Press the Delete or Backspace key to remove the selected text.

Step 5

If you have an empty page at the end of your document, you may find it difficult to remove it yourself. One possible solution is by changing the paragraph spacing of your document.

Select the options Format > Line & paragraph spacing > Remove space after paragraph.

Step 6

Another solution for removing an empty page at the end of your document is by adjusting your document’s margins.

In the File menu, select the Page setup option.

You can now make slight adjustments to the margins to achieve the right formatting.

Step 7

You may also want to keep all pages intact in your document but want to remove a page during the actual printing.

Most browsers allow you to choose which pages in your document you want to print out.

In the example above, the Print dialog screen in Microsoft Edge allows us to skip page 3 of our 4-page document.
