How to Unlock a Microsoft Word Header


Microsoft Word 2010 allows you to insert and edit headers on your documents. Headers give a consistent format on the top of the document, such as the title and page number. When you open the saved Word document, double-click the top of the page to activate the header for editing. The command ribbon will show tabs, such as "Design," "Home" and "Insert." Clicking these tabs allows you to edit the header for a custom look.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Office 2010: Word 2010
  • Open the saved Word document.

  • Double-click on the header. A blue dashed lined will appear between the main text and the header. The header can be edited.

  • Edit the header. For example, you can change the font and font color by clicking the buttons on the "Home" tab on the ribbon.

  • Click on "Close Header and Footer" to return to the main body of the document.

  • Save this document.
