Before we begin with this task, it’s important for you to know that the only way to copy a page in Word is to copy the content on it. Microsoft Word deals with blocks of text and not pages.
Whether you want a copy of the page in another document, or you simply want to duplicate the page in the same document, the process is the same, and it’s nice to know that it is not a hard task at all.
Copying a page in Microsoft Word involve simply selecting all the content on the page and pasting it to wherever you need it to be.
Without further ado, below are the steps to copy or duplicate a page in Word:
- Open your Word document and scroll to the page you want to copy.
- Select all the content on this page you want to copy.
- Right-click on the selection and choose Copy from the shortcut menu. Alternatively, use the copy shortcut (Ctrl+C) to copy the selected text.
At this point, you are done copying the page. But where will you want to paste it? Is it in the same document (duplicate the page) or in another document?
- If you want to paste the copied text into another document, open that document and click Ctrl+V to paste the page.
- To paste it in the same document, place the insertion pointer in the document where you want to paste the copied page, then press Crtl+V to paste.
- You can insert a blank page to fix the copied page. To do so, place the insertion pointer at the bottom of the page after which you will insert the blank page. Now go to the Insert tab, in the pages group, click on Blank Page.
- Place the insertion pointer in the blank page and click Ctrl+V to paste the page you copied.
This is how you may copy and duplicate pages in Microsoft Word.
