Insert Header in Word

Insert Header in Word

A header is an area at the top of each page of your document that contains information such as the document’s title, author, page number, or other relevant information. With Word, you can easily create a header that appears on every page of your document.

Here are the steps to create a header in Word:

  • Click on the “Insert” tab at the top of the menu bar.
  • Click the Header button in the Header & Footer area. A list of pre-designed header layouts will appear.
  • Select one of the default headers that matches your document type. You can also click “Edit Header” to create your own header.
  • If you selected “Edit Header“, the Header area will appear where you can enter your text. You can format the text, insert images and add other elements.
  • When you’re done, click “Close” on the header toolbar to return to normal view.

Your header will now appear on every page of your document. You can edit or delete the header at any time by clicking Header again and selecting Edit Header or Remove Header.

Tip: By the way, you can get to the header in Word even faster if you simply double-click in the upper area of your Word document.

If you want your header to be different on each page of your document (e.g. different on the first page than on the following pages), there are two options:

  • Different first page“: With this, the header on the first page is designed differently than on the following pages. To enable this option, click Header, then click Header and Footer Options. Then select “Different first page“.
  • Different Even and Odd Pages“: This makes the header on even pages different than on odd pages. To enable this option, click Header, then click Header and Footer Options. Then select “Different even and odd sides“.

Tip: The footer works just like the header in Word. The shortest way is to simply double-click in the lower area of a page. And the option to design the first page in Word differently is also available here.
