How to get a new page in Word without pressing enter, enter, enter

Wondering how to get a new page to type on in Microsoft Word without pressing enter repeatedly?

To get a new page in Microsoft Word, go to the menu ribbon at the top of the page and click on “Insert”.

Then select “Page Break”. This will start a new page for you to type on.

To collapse the two pages and hide all of the white/blank space, double-click the blue area between the two pages. To expand the two pages to show all the white space, double-click the gray line separating the two pages.

Now when you are writing your essays, you can stop exhausting your pinkie finger with pressing enter, enter, enter!
