Quickly remove all section breaks from document in Word

When inserting different headers and footers, or setting different page orientations for a long document, section break is powerful to realize them. However, there is no easy way to delete all sections breaks in Word except manually deleting section break symbols one by one. The Kutools for Word's Remove Section Breaks utility will help you remove all section breaks from the whole document or a part of document at once.

Not true, there is a way in Word itself, without downloading additional tools, to remove all section breaks at once.

1. Press CTRL + H to open the Find/Replace box

2. Click "More" at the bottom

3. Open the "Special" menu and choose Section Break

4. Don't type anything on the Replace line of the dialog box

5. Click Replace all.

Section breaks eliminated! Hope this helps.
