Header and footer basics

Steps for inserting page numbers


Page numbers are the most common type of header or footer. They're such a necessary element in documents that they get their own button and gallery of choices.

To add page numbers:

Callout 1 On the Insert tab, in the Header & Footer group, click Page Number.
Callout 2 Choose where you want the numbers on the page, at the top or on the bottom, for example.
Callout 3 Then choose a page number style from a gallery of possibilities.

The page numbers are applied throughout your document. Also, they're set up to automatically renumber if you add or delete content in the document.
