How to Edit a Footer's Border on Word 2007


Changing the footer border in a Word document personalizes a document using specific widths and colors. Word does come with several pre-designed footers, which put in the basic information, including graphics, page numbers, dates or borders. Whether you choose to use a pre-designed footer or create one of your own from the blank footer template, changing the border takes just a few clicks of the mouse.

  • Click on the "Insert" tab on the top of the page to open the ribbon. Approximately half way across the ribbon is the "Header & Footer" section. Click on the "Footer" icon in this section to access a drop-down menu.

  • Select the footer you wish to use if you have not yet done so. Choose "Edit Footer" at the bottom of the drop-down menu to position your cursor in the footer section.

  • Click the "Home" tab to access the ribbon. If you chose a blank footer in the "Paragraph" section, click the arrow next to the icon in the bottom right corner to access the borders and choose "Top Border." If you chose a pre-designed footer, click the icon itself to open the "Border" dialog box.

  • Drag the scroll bar on the Style window and choose the style of border you want. Choices include single, double and wavy lines. Click the down arrow next to the Width and Color Boxes, one at a time, to access your choices and make your selections. Once you have made your choices click "Apply."
