Note: You can also click on the table selection icon in the bottom-right corner for the same effect.

   2.   On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the dialog box launcher:

2016a paragraph

   3.   In the Paragraph dialog box, on the Line and Page Breaks tab, select the Keep with next checkbox:
