Neither. "displays" is a transitive verb and requires an object. Instead, use
the word "appears." If you're referring to something that is labelled "page 2"
use the term that the user will see. If you're referring to a second page that
doesn't have a label, and in particular if you're referring to a subsequent
screen of information, call it "the second screen" or something equivalent.
