If you've got a mission with a strict limit or you just know how many words you've written, Google Docs has your back. Here's how you see exactly how many words or pages you have written in your document.
How to find the page and word count
Find the page and word count is a simple process that is integrated into Google Docs.  The first thing you want to do is postpone Google Docs and open the document you want to count on. Click "Tools" and click "Word Count". Alternatively, you can press Ctrl + Shift + C (on Windows) or Command + Shift + C (on macOS).
That's it! The Word Counting window pops up and shows you a list of different bills related to your document, including the number of pages, words, characters, and characters excluding spaces.
If you just want to count on a specific point or sentence in your document, select the text first and then go to Tools> Word Count (or press the button combinations) to open the tool.
The Word Count window shows much of the same information for the selection, but also shows how much of the total document the choice is. For example, you can look at the picture below that the text we chose takes up 1 of our 13 total pages and 255 of our 6480 total words.
It is a simple tool to use. We only wish that we could leave it open on the screen while entering our documents. If you try to meet a quota (or try to get below a maximum page limit) it is frustrating to keep the tool over and over again.
