How to Check WordPad Word and Page Count

In this post, you will learn how to find the words and page count of a WordPad document.

I am using Windows 10 on this computer. Let’s get started.


WordPad does not display the word count for a document. Therefore, you need to do this:

Copy the text of the WordPad document.

Go to Google Docs.

At the bottom right, click the + icon.

Paste the copied text.

Click Tools at the top. Select Word count.

Next to “Words” in the pop-up, you’ll see the word count of your WordPad document.

As an alternative, you can also use free word counters available online to accomplish this task.

WordPad does not display the page count. You can find the number of pages in your document by following these steps:

Open the document for which you wish to know the page count.

Hit File at the top left.

Hover your mouse over Print.

Hit Print preview.

Hold down the down arrow until you see the pages have changed.

You should now be on the last page of the document.

In the left bottom, you can view the page count for the WordPad document.
