Whether you have been assigned a task with a strict limit or you just like to know how many words you have written, Google Docs supports you. Here we show you how to see exactly how many words or pages you have written in your document.
How to find the page and the word count
Finding the page and the word count is an easy process that is integrated into Google Docs.  The first thing you want to do is open Google Docs and open the document for which you want to get the count. Click on "Tools" and click on "Word Count." Alternatively, you can press Ctrl + Shift + C (in Windows) or Command + Shift + C (in macOS).
That's it! The word count window appears and shows you a list of different counts related to your document, including the number of pages, words, characters and characters that exclude spaces.
If you only want to check the count of a specific paragraph, or sentence, in your document, select the text first and then go to Tools> Word Count (or press the combination key) to open the tool.
The word count window shows much of the same information for the selection, but it also shows the amount of the total document that makes up the selection. For example, you can see in the following image that the text that we select occupies 1 of our 13 total pages and 255 of our 6480 total words.
It is an easy-to-use tool. We just want to be able to leave it open on the screen while we write our documents. If you are trying to meet a quota (or are trying to reach a maximum page limit), it is frustrating to have to keep opening the tool again and again.
