If you are working on a document in Microsoft Word, you may want to copy a page to reuse it in the same document with only slight changes. This is useful if you are creating a template. On the other hand, you may want to copy a page from your current document to use in a new one, which is convenient for business documents.
In any case, duplicating a page can be a huge time saver, whether you make changes after copying it or leave it as is.
Although Word does not offer a built-in function to duplicate a page, you can accomplish this task in a matter of minutes. We will show you how to copy a page into the same document and into a new one.
How to duplicate or copy a page from a single page document
If your current document has only one page, copying and pasting within the document is straightforward.
Select all the content on the page using one of these methods:
- Press Ctrl + A.
- Click on Select> Select All on the tab ribbon Beginning.
- Drag the cursor across the entire content.
Then copy that content using one of these methods:
- Press Ctrl + C.
- Click on Copy on the tab ribbon Beginning.
- Right-click and select Copy.
Then place your cursor at the bottom of the page. Go to the tab Insert and click Blank page in the section pages of the tape.
Your cursor should now appear at the top of the new blank page. Paste the content you just copied using one of these methods:
- Press Ctrl + V.
- Click on Paste on the tab ribbon Beginning.
- Right-click and select Paste.
And that’s it. You just duplicated a page in your current document.
How to duplicate a page of a multi-page document
If your document has several pages and you only want to duplicate one, use the same type of copy / paste actions but only select the text of the page you want to copy.
To do this, drag the cursor only over the content of that page and use one of the above methods to copy the content.
Place your cursor at the bottom of the page where you want to insert the new page that will soon be duplicated. Then on the tab Insert, click Blank page.
Paste the content you just copied using one of the above methods.
How to copy the page into a new document
If you want to copy a page from your existing document and place it in a new document, use the same steps as in the previous case but adjust one thing.
Select and copy the content of the page using the mentioned methods. Then instead of using the tab Insert to add a new page, click File and select Blank document on New.
When the new document appears, position the cursor where you want the new page and use one of the pasting methods mentioned.
How to copy the page into an existing document
If you already have a document to which you want to copy the page, follow the same steps to select and copy the page. Open your existing document, position your cursor where you want the page, and use one of the pasting methods mentioned.
You can also rearrange the pages after duplicating a page in Word.
Duplicating a page is just copy and paste
Perhaps the ability to duplicate a single page is something Microsoft will add to Word at some point. But if not, you have an easy way to do it using simple copy and paste actions.
