Backspace should work. Go to the end of page 2 and then backspace. It will delete the invisible characters which are pushing you onto a new page.

File/Options/Display and tick the "Show all formatting marks" box will allow you to see all the hidden characters. Makes them easier to delete. Untick to hide again.

Great, it works. MS Word can be a little tricky at times. Thanks!

Click on the pilcrow (¶), also called the paragraph mark, paragraph sign etc on the ribbon bar. I basically don't know why it's turned off by default as having it on shows up a whole bunch of information you need when in WORD working seriously.

How to delete a page in Word?

1. Press Ctrl+G (or Option+⌘+G on a Mac)
2. A window pops up and in the 'Enter page number:' field type \page
3. Hit enter then 'close'
4. Hit backspace to delete the entire page.
