Now selecting content of these pages to delete it can increasingly become a tedious task as the number of pages increases. You may wonder is there any simple way to delete range of pages in Ms Word.

  3. Press F5 again to open Go To option window and Enter 26 (one more than 25) in “Enter page number” and click Go To (or press Enter). Note: The above step should bring the cursor to the starting of page 26 and select contents from page 15 to 25.
