Headers and Footers in MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

One of my subscribers, Greg, wrote me to say that he had a document and wanted his company logo on the first page of his document but not in the subsequent pages.

This is actually pretty easy to accomplish, using the Different First Page feature.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  • Click on File | Page Setup and select the Layout tab to display the dialog box.  
  • Check the box that says Different First Page under Headers and Footers.  

After I advised him how to accomplish this, he wrote back to me asking me how he could make a different header of each of the subsequent pages of his document.

Below is my response:

  • Whenever you want to have a different header on a page, use a Next Page page break.  
  • Click on Insert | Break | Next Page.
  • When you open the header, make sure that you click Link to Previous on the Header/Footer toolbar to unlink each header, otherwise they will all look the same.

He was very pleased that it was such a simple solution!
