MS Word - Line at the bottom of each page

I am using MS Word 2013

I have been adding horizontal lines to my document, under tables, under columns, etc

I have been experimenting liberally, and now that I have cleaned up, but I still see a solid horizontal line at the bottom of each page

I suspect I have hit some sort of Page Layout option that puts a line at the end of each page.  So I went to the page layout section, but could not find how I could disable this

How Can I disable a horizontal line at the end of each page ?

What happens is, when you have 2 or more subsequent lines with a bottom border in your document HAVING THE SAME PARAGRAPH STYLE, only the last line will display the border...Paragraph BorderSo simply select all these paragraphs and remove the border.

AHA - you probably inserted a PAGE BORDER!Border menuborderPage-Border.docx

I agree with the above. Another place to look, however, is in the footer. You could have put a line in the footer, which would then appear at the bottom of each page.
