Add a heading
The best way to add headings in Word is to apply styles. You can use the built-in styles, or you can customize them.
What do you want to do?
Apply a heading style
Type the text of your heading, and then select it.
On the Home tab, in the Styles group, click the heading style that you want. If you don't see the style that you want, click the More button to expand the Quick Styles gallery.
Note You can see how selected text will look with a particular style by placing your pointer over the style that you want to preview.
Customize a heading style
You can change the font and formatting of a heading style.
Select the heading text that you want to customize.
On the Home tab, in the Styles group, click the heading style that you want to customize.
Make the changes that you want.
For example, you can change the font, the size, or the color.
On the Home tab, in the Styles group, right-click the heading style that you customized, and then click Update Heading to Match Selection.
Every time you apply that heading style in your document, the heading style will include your customizations.
