How to create a footer and header in Microsoft Word 2016

The header is a segment of the report that shows up in the best edge, while the footer is a segment of the archive that shows up in the base edge. Headers and footers for the most part contain extra data, for example, page numbers, dates, a writer’s name, and commentaries, which can help keep longer archives sorted out and make them simpler to peruse. Content entered in the header or footer will show up on each page of the archive.

To make a header or footer:

In our illustration, we need to show the creator’s name at the highest point of each page, so we’ll put it in the header.

Double tap anyplace on the best or base edge of your archive. In our illustration, we’ll double tap the best edge.

Double-clicking on the header

The header or footer will open, and a Design tab will show up on the correct side of the Ribbon. The addition point will show up in the header or footer.
