Word allows you to move the insertion point to any page in your document by using the Go To command. To take advantage of this feature, follow these steps:

  1. Press F5. Word displays the Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box.
  2. On the left side of the dialog box, make sure that you indicate you want to go to a page (this should be the default choice). (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box.

  4. Enter the page number to which you want to move.
  5. Click on Go To, or press Enter.

If, instead of entering a page number (step 3), you simply click on the Next button, Word moves to the next page in the document.

Thank you for this tip. I was wondering why it's not more straight forward. Never mind.
I don't know how it is for others but with this tip I would have needed to be told also to check the function on the keyboard. Mine is called F Lock and I never use it, although I thought of it when your first step here is to hit F5 and this for me only opened a panel to open a file. I was looking on its left and of course there was nothing to see... But after I pressed F Lock it was ok. Just the same thank you again. MM
