Resize or relocate a header or footer

You can change a header or footer placeholder by resizing it or relocating it anywhere on a slide.

Notes: 

  • To add text to the top of each handout or notes page in your presentation, or to the bottom of each slide, handout, or notes page by using headers and footers, see Add a header or footer.

  • To add slide numbers, page numbers, or the date or time to your slides, see Add slide or page numbers or the date and time.

  • Currently, it is not possible to add a graphic (for example, a logo) to a header or footer.

  • To change the font, size, case, color, or spacing for text within a placeholder, select the text, click the Home tab, and then in the Font group, click the options that you want.

  • Do one of the following:

    • To resize a placeholder, click the placeholder that you want to change, point to one of its sizing handles, and when the pointer becomes a two-headed arrow, drag the handle.
