Hi, my name is Brian and this is how to insert section breaks and different header. So, when you're working in a Microsoft Word document, you might want to set a header for your page. But Microsoft Word will automatically make all the headers on all the pages of your document the same. So, I'm going to show you how to set them differently. And at the same time, I will show you how to set section breaks because you have to do that in order to set different headers on different pages. So, I have a document open in Microsoft Word and there's three pages here. And the first thing I'm going to do, is I'm going to insert a header. Which I can do in Documents Elements and then, Header and then, I can choose whatever style header I like. So, let's say i choose this one, o.k., alright. Now I'm going to go to the bottom of my page and insert a page break by going into the break. And then, I'm going to insert Next Page. Now on this page, I am also going to insert a header. Which I will choose, let's say this header, o.k. So, now I have different headers on the first and second page. But on the third page, if I go in and I try to put things in this header, it will remain the same as the first header. So, in order to fix that, I need to go into header and footer and simply uncheck this box Linked to Previous. Once I uncheck that, i will be able to edit this header and it'll be different than any other header in the document.
