I tried the arrow technique and while it worked as you described, I am curious by what I saw. Please explain what Word is doing...
I opened a new Word 2010 document. With the cursor on Page 1, Position 1, I pressed Ctrl-End, Ctrl-Enter to insert a new page. I then used the back arrow as suggested and the cursor landed at a spot 2' beyond Page 1, Position 1.
So here's my question...I hope this makes sense.
The cursor did not move when I pressed Ctrl-End and then moved to Page 2 Position 1 when I hit Ctrl-Enter. I assume that means that Ctrl-Enter 'added' something to Page 1 which causes the cursor to land beyond the original end of the document when the back arrow is used.
Further, if the cursor is at Page 2 Position 1 after Ctrl-Enter, pressing backspace once does nothing visible, while pressing backspace twice deletes Page 2. However, as I mentioned, pressing the back arrow moves the cursor to the 2' spot on Page 1. Pressing backspace at that point deletes Page 2.
So what is happening in that 2' space on Page 1 that the back arrow key recognizes it but the backspace key (sort of) doesn't?

Hold the “Ctrl” button and push the “Enter” button. This will insert a page break on Microsoft Word, which will allow you to move to the next page. Add a page In your open publication, turn to the page that will come before or after the pages you want to add. On the Insert tab, click the arrow below the Page button.

Q. I've created a Word document with multiple chapters, and I want to insert different headers and footers for each chapter. However, each time I create a new header, it changes my previous headers. What's the solution to creating different headers?


A. As a default in Word, all subsequent headers and footers link to the previous page's header and footer. To insert a new header or footer without altering the one you've already inserted, navigate to the bottom of the last page before your new header or footer, and from the Layout tab (or the Page Layout tab) select Breaks, Next Page as pictured below. This action will create a section break enabling you to apply different attributes (such as headers and footers, margin settings, page sizes, orientations, etc.) to one section of the document without affecting other sections.

On the next page after the break, navigate to the header or footer area and double-click that area to make it editable (referred to as Design mode); this action also displays the header and footer toolbars. Next, select the existing header or footer and click the Link to Previous option (as circled below) to break the header or footer connection.

Once the link is broken, you can edit or change the new section's header or footer without affecting your previous headers or footers. Continue to insert Next Page breaks and then break the link connections for each subsequent chapter where you want different headers or footers to appear.
