Page Movement in a Word Document

Page Movement

Do you want to see all the pages in your Document at once and to easily navigate to the page that we want, quickly and efficiently? We just have to use the Thumbnails command. The Thumbnails command is a new feature available in Microsoft Word and will be described in the post below. Just keep on reading.

We must select the View tab and to make sure that from the area of the ribbon named Views, the Print Layout command is activated as shown in the image below.

View Tab - Page Layout

Once we are sure that the Print Layout command is activated, we locate the area of the ribbon named Page Movement as shown below. By default, under this area the Vertical command is activated as we can see below. With this command, we scroll up and down in order to move among our pages.

Page Movement - Vertical

Under the Page Movement area of the View tab, we select the command Side To Side as shown in the image below. By activating this command, we can see whole pages by sliding each page from right to left or left to right.

In the image below, I have selected the command Side To Side command under the Page Movement area of the View tab, and we can see how are pages will be displayed on our screen.

Once we activate the Side To Side command, a new area appears on the View tab which is named Zoom. In the Zoom area of the View tab, the only available command is the Thumbnails one. By selecting this command, we can see all the pages like tiles. This way it is easier to jump to the one that we want quicker and easier. We just click on any Thumbnail to go to that page.

By using the Thumbnails command we can flip through pages using our fingers. We can zoom in or out to the Thumbnail level, if we have a touch screen. If we don’t have one we can scroll on our mouse wheel or use the Horizontal Scroll Bar to move through the pages.
