Add and Format Page Numbers in a Word Document
If you have a longer document, you can add automatic page numbering to make it easier to know your place in the document.
Next, choose where you want the page number to appear. You can choose either the header or footer, in the side margins, or where the text cursor is currently placed.
There are plenty of built-in designs available, from plain numbers to more stylized numbers and shapes.
The page number is added as a new page header or footer. The page number will increment automatically for each page, while the other text and decoration will stay the same.
The page number is added.
Once you’ve added page numbers, you can customize the number format, enable chapter numbers, and adjust how the numbering starts.
The Page Number Format dialog box opens, with a few ways to customize how page numbers appear.
In addition to numbers, you could also use letters or roman numerals.
If your document is set up with chapter numbers, you can have those appear with the page numbers.
If the document you’re working on is a continuation of another document, you can also specify a number that the page numbers will start at.
The number format has changed.
If your document no longer needs page numbers, they're easy to remove.
The page numbers are removed.
You can also remove page numbers manually by editing the header or footer to remove the page number placeholders.
