moderated Adding page numbers in Word 2016


Adrian Spratt
 

Hi.

 

Would someone please post step-by-step directions for how to add page numbers to a Word 2016 document? What I find on Google tends to require vision.

 

I had it worked out for Word 2010, but when I updated long ago to 2016, I cheated by creating a page-numbered template that I use as a starting point for new documents. I now have a heavily formatted document that I renamed in order to revise it, but although all that formatting carried over, the page numbers did not.

 

Thanks.

I don't have word 2016 to test out this theory, but I used to add page
numbers all the time and it sound right to me;. First go up to the
insert tab then move through the options until you find something that
references headers and footers. Once you enter you will find several
options for what type of header you want. Jaws does a pretty good job
of reading the various options. I probably don't hneed to say this,
but I would make a second copy of your document to play around with
until you figure what header type you want.

I hope this helpful.
