Duplicating pages in a single-page document

Duplicating pages in a single-page document is rather easy. All you have to do is select all the content, add a new blank page and copy it over there. Here’s how. 

Step 1: Open your document and select everything inside by pressing Ctrl + A.  Once selected, you can copy everything by pressing Ctrl + C.

Duplicating pages in a multi-page document

Duplicating pages in a multi-page document is rather similar to the aforementioned process except you lose the convenience of pressing Ctrl + A to select everything. In multi-page documents, you’re going to have to copy each page individually before you can duplicate its contents to the new page. 

Step 1: Open your document and head over to the page you want to copy. Place your cursor at the beginning of the page and highlight the entire page. Once the page is selected, press Ctrl + C to copy the contents.

Step 1: Open the Word document you want to copy pages in and head over to the View tab. Once there, click Macros followed by View Macros.
