Hi all, Van I tried the steps that you explained in word 2013, and found the insert area was different then 2010, and now my client has 2016 on her system. does anyone out there on the list have any other suggestions I can pass on?

Thanks. This is what I needed. I also have word 2010, but my client has word 2016. I hope this works for her.
BTW, you can check by pressing Insert plus F to find out things such as Font Double spacing and so on. It will also tell you if things are centered Left or right justified.
I’m using Word 2010. You can do as you have asked. Start on the first page of your document and go to the Insert Ribbon. Tab over till you hit the Page numbers button, which has a menu. With options as to where to place the page number, top of page, bottom of page, etc. For me, the second option down is to put the page number at the bottom of the page in the footer and it has a submenu allowing you to pick the style. For my test, I selected the third or fourth one down that said something like ‘pg. 1”. Hit enter on the choice you want. When you hit enter, your cursor will be placed in the documents footer at the beginning of the line. By default, the page number for this choice was at the left edge. I supposed part of what you are choosing on the submenu is where you want the page number to be located, e.g., left, right, center, etc. If you arrow beyond the page number, you can add a comma or hyphen and your name. Hit Escape to exit out of the footer. You can also use the standard Word shortcuts of Control L to left justify, Control E to center and Control R to right justify. Now, each time you add pages, the footer will automatically add the page number with your name.
I admit that I am using my bit of vision to confirm that the page numbers are as I have told you and I don’t know the best way for you to validate your work. Maybe using the JAWS cursor to read the page.
Hi all, Is there a way to insert a page number on a word document along with putting your name next to that page number?
