Editing a Footer or Header in a Microsoft Word Document
The video demonstrates how to edit a header or footer in a Microsoft Word Document. This only works for newer versions of Word.
There are two ways to edit the footer:
- Double click in the footer area OR
- Go to Insert > Footer > Edit Footer
When the footer is in edit mode, the text in the footer will get darker and a dashed line will appear above it along with a textbox that says “Footer”. You can now click on the footer text and edit it.
The same process applies to headers, just substitute “header” for “footer” in the directions above.
