How to Insert a Blank Page in Word 2007

By Dan Gookin

In Word 2007, you can insert a blank page into the middle of a document. The Blank Page command lets you manually insert a blank sheet of paper even though Word 2007 automatically adds new pages as you write.

The Pages group is the first group on the Ribbon, located next to the Tables group.

3Click the Blank Page button.

This button inserts two hard page breaks into a document, which creates a blank sheet of paper.

Use this command only is you really need a blank page in the midst of a document — that is, only if you never plan on writing on that page. You can put graphics on the page or add a table, but writing on the page leads to formatting problems.
