Jumping to a Relative Page

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated November 7, 2015)

Word allows you to use the Go To function to jump to a page number relative to your current position in the document. This is done in the following way:

  1. Press F5. Word displays the Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box.

  3. 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).
  4. Enter either a plus or minus sign, followed by how many pages you want to jump. Plus jumps forward; minus jumps backward.
  5. Click on Go To, or press Enter.
