Open the “Go-To” tab in the menu bar or simply click Ctrl+G on the keyboard. Then go to the ‘Enter Page Number’ tab and type ‘page’ in it. Then click ‘Go To’ or click Enter space on the keyboard and close the tab.

How To Delete/Remove a Blank
MS Word has editors that add or create blank pages in a document either in the middle of it or at the end, for no solid reasons. Deleting such blank pages from your document before submitting it to your boss or printing it is a good idea.
To do so you can take a few simple and quick steps:
Select ‘View’ in the menu bar and make sure to tick the ‘Navigation Pane’ box. Open the ‘Navigation Pane’ to find any blank page. This will open a new tab to you on the left-hand side of the document, showing all the available (blank or with text) pages of your word document. If you do not see pages, select the ‘Pages’ tab.
View the whole list by scrolling it to find those pages which you want to delete. Pick the particular page and click over it to open it.
Click Ctrl+8+shift and hold them to make the paragraph markers appear on the document.
Blank pages may look blank and empty, without text, but they have hidden paragraph markers. This is why the software takes it as a page with content and thus it is difficult to delete a blank page. You can select the paragraph markers and click the ‘Delete’ key for removing the paragraph markers. Doing so will delete the whole blank page.
And your blank pages are gone.
