How to Remove a Google Docs Page Break

If you’ve ever needed to end a page in a document before it was full of content, then you may have tried a couple of different things.

The first solution that many document creators will use is to simply press the Enter key a bunch of times and keep adding new lines until they reach the next page.

The second solution is to insert a page break, which will end the page where the break is inserted and start a new one automatically.

You can add a page break in Google Docs by going to Insert > Break > Page break.

But there is no similar option for removing a page break, and the break isn’t indicated by anything on the page, meaning that you can’t simply select it and remove it.

Fortunately you can remove a page break in Google Docs, however, by following the steps below.

How to Delete a Google Docs Page Break

The steps in this article were performed in the desktop Google Chrome Web browser, but will work in other desktop browsers as well.

Step 1: Sign into Google Drive and open the document with the page break that you wish to remove.

Step 2: Place your cursor at the start of the first line on the new page after the page break.

Step 3: Press the Backspace key on your keyboard to remove the page break.

The content that was previously on the new page should now be directly after the content that preceded the page break.

Note that you may need to press the Backspace key several times depending on how much space there is between the page break and the content on the new page. Additionally, after deleting the page break, you may need to press the Enter key a couple of times until your document layout is correct.
