Page Number function in word

When creating a Microsoft® Word document, you may need to insert page numbers at the bottom of each page. Many people don’t know how to do it properly and type numbers on every page manually. There is an easier way to accomplish this task. The Microsoft® Word application contains a function that automatically places page numbers on every page as part of the footer.  In Word® 2010, the footer automatically is created when you use the page number function, which also allows you to determine the size, font, exact placement and other properties for these numbers. The instructions below explain how to use this feature and number all the pages in your document.

Using the page number function in Word 2010:

  1. Open the Word document that needs page numbers.
  2. Switch to the “Insert” tab on the main ribbon.
  3. Click on the “Page Number” dropdown in the “Header & Footer“ section.
  4. Select “Bottom Page” and in the side menu, select the exact placement of the numbers on the page.
  5. A new “Header & Footer“ ribbon tab opens where you can set all the details in the footer. To manage the numbering, click on the “Page Number” dropdown menu again and select “Format Page Numbers…”.
