Hiding Between the Pages

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS

Q: Is it possible to temporarily hide or suppress headers, footers or page borders when reading a Word document?

 

A: Double-clicking on the separation between pages will suppress headers, footers, borders, space between the pages, and any extra white space at the bottom of a page, thus allowing you to view the maximum amount of text on your screen. For example, the two screens below show the same document, except the view on the right has been collapsed, allowing you to view three pages of text instead of just one.

 

To restore the headers, footers and spaces between the pages, double-click the solid line separating the pages. Keep reading for another potential solution.
