To add a new page anywhere in your Google Docs document, select an option from the Docs’ menu bar or use a keyboard shortcut. We’ll show you how to use both of these options in Docs on desktop and mobile.

In Google Docs, you basically add a new page by inserting a page break. Anything written after this page break will appear on the new page.

Insert a New Page in Google Docs on Desktop

To add a new page to a document from your desktop, first, launch the Google Docs site on your computer. Then open the document in which you want to add a page.

On the document’s editing screen, place your cursor where you want to insert a new page. Everything to the right of your cursor will move to the new page.

Select the new page location.

From Google Docs’ menu bar, select Insert > Break > Page Break. Alternatively, press Ctrl+Enter (Windows, Linux, Chromebook) or Command+Enter (Mac).

Choose Insert > Break > Page Break.

If you’ve enabled the View > Show Print Layout option, you will see a page break line indicating the new page. If you don’t have that option enabled, scroll down to see your new page.
