Re: How do I move into and out of the header/footer pane in MS Word 2016? - SOLVED

Hi Heather!

Thanks for your below. Yes, escape gets me out of the header/footer view and back into the main document pane. That was too simple for me 😉 Your method below for getting into the header/footer view is great too. Finally, I found the definitive answer to all of this in Microsoft's posting entitled "Use a screen reader to create headers or footers in Word - Office Support" at the below link.

Thanks again,
Richard

Hi Richard,
To get into the header/footer pane in Word 2016, press the following sequence of keys:
Alt + N to go to the Insert tab of the ribbon.
H for Header.
Then E for Edit header.

To exit Header/Footer view, press Escape.

Hope that helps,
Heather

I tried control+alt+n as suggested below, and also control+F6 as someone else suggested. Neither works. The former changed the document view to "draft" (which such view yielded no resolution) and the latter did nothing.
So, my question remains: How do I move into and out of the header/footer pane in MS Word 2016?

Try ctrl+alt+n.

Well, as I mentioned at first below, F6 does not do it. The alt+v then
h thing works to get me *into* the header/footer pane, but my problem
still remains once there - I cannot get out of it and back into the
document pane.
So, my question persists: how do you move between the header/footer
pane and the document pane?

F6 should do it. I always use alt-v, then h. It is a carry-over from
before the ribbon. To insert a header is alt+n, then h.

Hi!

I am using JAWS 2019 and MS Word 2016 under Windows 7. In a
particular Word document, I went through the ribbons to create a
footer, and ended-up in that pane. But, I got stuck in it and could
not figure out how to move between it and the main document pane. F6
only moved me around virtual ribbons / status bar / footer pane,
never getting back to the main document pane. So, how do you get
into and out of the footer pane?

Thanks,
Richard
