Remove all headers or footers in Word for Mac

The header and footer areas are the parts of the printed page above and below the top and bottom margins. They can be filled with content, such as a page number or the title of the document—or they can be blank. Removing a header or footer will make the area blank; it won't change the margins. Here's how to remove all headers or footers:

  1. On the Insert tab, click Header or Footer, and then click Remove Header or Remove Footer.

    On the Footer menu, Remove a Footer is highlighted

  2. If your document has more than one section, repeat this process for each section.
