I want Microsoft Word to display page breaks between pages, instead of this line separator between my pages as in the following picture:

How can I change this?

Place your mouse pointer exactly on the separator line and double click. This toggles the display of white space between pages.


You can go to Word Options choose Display and under Page Display Options click in the square near Show White Space Between Pages in Print Layout View
Or like Atzmon's advice for quicker way just point on the top or bottom edge of a page and double-click.


Follow these steps:

  • Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
  • In the left pane, click Customize.
  • In the Choose commands from list, click All Commands.
  • Click White Space Between Pages, click Add, and then click OK.

The White Space Between Pages option will appear on the Quick Access Toolbar.
