I like the light footprint and speed of WordPad, so sometimes I use it

I haven't seen another post showing how to insert page breaks, so
here's how:

First, the document must be saved in Rich Text Format, which seems to
be the default for WordPad but is also an option when using File
Save As to save the file.

Close the document, and open it using Notepad. This will display all
of the RTF tags which WordPad automatically hides.

Scroll down in the document to where you want to place the page break,
then enter:
This is the RTF tag for a page break.

Close and save the document from Notepad.

Open the document in WordPad, and using File Print Preview, notice
that there is now a page break where you inserted \page.
