Add a cover page in Word for Mac

Microsoft Word offers a gallery of convenient predesigned cover pages. Choose a cover page and replace the sample text with your own.

Note: Cover pages don't display page numbers.

Insert a cover page

  1. On the Insert tab, click Cover Page.

    On the Insert menu, select Cover Page

  2. Click a cover page layout from the gallery of options.

    After you insert a cover page, you can replace the sample text with your own text by clicking to select an area of the cover page, such as the title, and typing your text.


  • To see how your cover page will look, on the View menu, select Print Layout or Web Layout.

  • If you insert another cover page in the document, the new cover page will replace the first cover page you inserted.

  • To replace a cover page created in an earlier version of Word, you must delete the first cover page manually, and then add a new cover page with a design from the Word gallery.

Remove a cover page

  • Click the Insert tab, click Cover Page, and then click Remove Cover Page.
