Edit a header or footer

Perhaps you’ve updated a document with new information and want to update the header or footer as well.

  1. Double-click inside the header or footer area (near the top or bottom of the page) to open the Header & Footer Tools.

  2. Select the text you want to change and type your new header or footer in its place.

  3. Double-click anywhere outside of the header or footer area to close the Header & Footer Tools.

Change the design of the header or footer

You can change the look of a header or footer by applying a different design from the built-in collection.

Note: Changing header or footer styles overwrites your current header or footer, so you’ll have to type the information in again.

  1. Double-click inside the header or footer area (near the top or bottom of the page) to open the Header & Footer Tools.

  2. On the Design tab under Header & Footer Tools, click Header or Footer.

  3. Choose a style from the gallery.

When you're finished with headers and footers, double-click anywhere outside of the header or footer area to close the Header & Footer Tools.
