How to Duplicate a Page in Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word

There are many reasons why you may want to duplicate a page in a Microsoft Word document, especially if you are creating a template. It’s a fairly simple process, so here’s how to do it.

Inserting a blank page or a page break in Microsoft Word

If you only want to insert a blank page, rather than copying an existing page, you can click the “Insert” tab on the ribbon bar, then select “Blank Page” to add it.

If you want to split an existing document, you can insert a page break instead. This will push any content below the break to a new page.

To do this, place your document cursor at the location to create the break. In the “Insert” tab, click on the “Page break” button.

If it is hidden, click the button in the “Pages” section to find it.

Duplicating a page in a single page document

There is no one-button solution to duplicate a page, like a similar document, in a Microsoft Word document. You must first copy the content of your first page, create a new page, and then paste the content of your original page on the new page.

If you are doing this on a single page document, you have a few additional options to help you, including additional keyboard commands.

Copy page content

First select the content of your page. You can do this manually using your mouse or by pressing Ctrl + A to select everything on the page.

You will then need to copy the content of your page. Press Ctrl + C on your keyboard or right-click on the selected content and press “Copy” instead.

Insert new page and paste

With the content of your Word document from one page to your clipboard, you now need to insert a new page before pasting the content. You will then create two duplicate pages.

To start, click on the “Blank page” button, which is located in the “Insert” tab of your ribbon bar. If your document’s cursor does not automatically move to the new page, scroll down and click on it.

On your blank page, press Ctrl + V on your keyboard to paste the content of your first page onto a second document. You can also right-click and press one of the “Paste” options.

If you want to keep the same formatting, click the Keep source formatting button.

To paste into Word, press Ctrl + V or right-click on your page, by clicking one of the paste options.

The content of your copied page will be inserted into your new page, effectively duplicating it.

Duplicating pages in multi-page documents

The process of duplicating pages in multi-page documents is quite similar, but you need to know where the cursor is in your document before inserting a new page.

As with single page documents, you must first copy the content of the page you wish to duplicate. However, you will not be able to use Ctrl + A to select the content, as this will select everything in your Word document.

Instead, you will have to use your mouse cursor to select the content of a single page. Place your document’s cursor at the start of your page, and then drag it down.

Stop once you reach the end of the page.

To manually select the content of a Microsoft Word page, place your document's cursor at the top of the page, then drag down

Copy the content of your page (Ctrl + C or right click> Copy) before moving the cursor of your document to position, ready to create a new page below.

Insert your page (Insert> Blank page) before pasting the content on this page (Ctrl + V or right click> Keep source formatting).
