Change the header or footer on notes and handouts

Looking to change or even delete the information in the headers and footers of your notes and handouts pages? Just follow these steps.

Change the header and footer

  1. Click View > Normal.
  2. Click Insert > Header & Footer.
  3. In the Header and Footer box, click the Notes and Handouts tab, make the changes you want, and click Apply to All.

    These changes don’t affect the headers or footers on the slides themselves—just the notes and handouts. To change the headers and footers on the slides themselves, see Change the header on your slides.

Delete the header and footer

  1. Click View > Normal.
  2. Click Insert > Header & Footer.
  3. In the Header and Footer box, click the Notes and Handouts tab, uncheck the boxes for the options you want to delete from the header or footer, and click Apply to All.

    Again, these changes don’t affect the headers or footers on the slides themselves—just the notes and handouts. To change the headers and footers on the slides themselves, see Change the header on your slides.
