How to Extract Pages From a Microsoft Word Document

1. Click the 'Office' button, then click the 'Open' command. Use the 'Open' dialog box's controls to navigate to a Word document from which you'd like to extract some pages.
2. Click the 'Find' button on the 'Home' tab, then click the 'Go To' item within that button. Word will display a dialog box for you to enter a Word object you can navigate to. A page is such an object.
3. Click the 'Page' item in the 'Go to What' pane to tell Word that you're navigating to a page rather than some other item in the document.
4. Type in the 'Page' text boxes the number of a page you'd like to extract from the current document. For example, if you want to extract page 2, type '2' in the text box.
5. Click the 'Go To' button to make Word navigate to the page you indicated. Click anywhere on the document, then press 'F8,' which tells Word you want to extend the selection area.
6. Type in the 'Go To' dialog box's 'Page' text box the number of the page after the one you want to extract. For example, if you typed '2' in Step 4, type '3' in the text box.
7. Click 'Go To' to make Word navigate to the new page. Notice that Word has selected all of page 2, the page you wanted to extract. Pressing the 'F8' key enabled this behavior.
8. Click the 'Close' button on the 'Go To' dialog box, then press 'Control' and 'X' simultaneously to cut the page you selected to the clipboard. This performs the page extraction.
9. Press 'Control' and 'N' simultaneously to open a new Word document, then press 'Control' and 'V' simultaneously to paste the extracted page into the new document.
10. Repeat Steps 2 through 9 for each of the other pages you'd like to extract.
