How to Delete Pages in Microsoft Word 2007

Scroll to the page break at the bottom of the page that you want to delete. Click the break with your mouse and press "Delete" on your keyboard. Click "View" and select "Print View" to return to the default viewing mode.

Scroll to the page you want to delete. Click your mouse on the page to bring up the cursor.

Click on the tab marked "Home" and click "Go To" under "Find." Type "\page" into the box.
