How to insert a blank line above a Word table

Posted by Roger Hyttinen on

If you have a table at the very beginning of a Word document and try to add a blank line above the table, you may become a tad frustrated in trying to do so. You'll quickly discover that that if you click in the first cell of the table and press Enter, Word inserts a blank line in the first table cell, which is probably not what you want.

If you’ve encountered this problem, perhaps you’ve worked around it by copying the entire table, using the Cut command, tapping Enter a couple of times to add in some blank lines and then pasting the table back in. That certainly is one way to do it.

There is an easier way however. Simply press the Ctrl + Home keystroke combination and then press Enter. Word will insert a blank line above the table, rather than in the cell.
