Information in headers and footers helps to identify a document when it is printed. A header is information that prints at the top of every page, and a footer is information that prints at the bottom of every page.
Activity 1.11. Accessing Headers and Footers
On the menu bar, click View, and then click Header and Footer.
On the Header and Footer toolbar, click the Switch Between Header and Footer button .
On the Header and Footer toolbar, click the Insert AutoText button . Take a moment to study the items that you can insert in a header or footer, as shown in Figure 1.25.
From the Insert AutoText menu, click Filename.
On the Header and Footer toolbar, click the Close button . Alternatively, double-click anywhere in the text area of the document to close the Header and Footer toolbar. Save your changes. Scroll down until you can see the footer, and then compare your screen with Figure 1.26.
The footer displays in light gray. Because it is a proper name and likely not in Word's dictionary, your name in the footer may display with wavy red lines.
More Knowledge: Moving to the Header or Footer
A quick way to edit an existing header or footer is to double-click in the header or footer area. This will display the Header and Footer toolbar, and also place the insertion point at the beginning of the header or footer.
Activity 1.12. Printing a Document from the Toolbar
Check your Chapter Assignment Sheet or Course Syllabus, or consult your instructor, to determine if you are to submit your assignments on paper or electronically using your college's course information management system. To submit electronically, go to Step 3, and then follow the instructions provided by your instructor.
On the Standard toolbar, click the Print button . Collect your printout from the printer and submit it as directed.
One copy of your document prints on the default printer connected to your system. The formatting marks that indicate spaces and paragraphs do not print.
On the menu bar, click File, and then click Close, saving any changes if prompted to do so. Alternatively, click the Close Window button on the right edge of the menu bar. Close Word, or if you are continuing to the next project, leave Word open.
