Disable Automatic Page Breaks in Word?

Does anyone know if it is possible to turn off page breaks in Word? By default the program chooses a "paper size" and uses that as the background for the document which causes automatic page breaks. This may be great if you are going to print everything, but, honestly, I print very little of the documents I write. They are almost always reviewed on screen.  Having one long scrolling page would work much better. I believe Google Docs works this way. Is there a way to do this in Word also? Defaulting to a print layout seems so antiquated and it makes reading more difficult when images and charts get bumped to the "next" page.

Both in Print Layout view and Draft view, Word will still paginate the document.

In Web Layout view, the document will behave as if it consists of one continuous page without breaks.
