How to Delete a Section Break in Word 2007

In Word 2007, you can use the Delete key to delete a section break. The following steps show how to delete a section break with the Delete key.


On the View tab, select Draft in the Document Views group.

This method works best in Draft view with the Show/Hide command working to display the section breaks. To access the Show/Hide command, press Ctrl+Shift+8.


Position the insertion pointer just before the section break.

Don’t click the mouse. Simply position the insertion pointer.


Press the Delete key on the keyboard.

Deleting a section removes any formatting, including headers and footers that were unique to that section. If you accidentally delete a section break, you lose any special formatting applied to that section; press Ctrl+Z to undo the deletion.
