Jumping to a Specific Page

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated March 27, 2021)

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.
