Start Page Numbering After Cover Page

Issue/Question

How do I start my page numbering after my cover page? 

Environment

  • Office 365
    • Microsoft Word

Resolution

  1. Go to Insert tab.
  2. Expand Footer drop down.
  3. Click Edit Footer.
  4. Check Different First Page.
    •  Note:  Different first page can be applied to the first page of any section in your document, not just the very first page of the entire document.
  5. In the footer area, you should see a label on the first page that says First Page Footer. Select the page number and press Delete.
  6. Select Close Header and Footer, or press Esc to exit.
  7. Cover page should no longer have page numbers, and next page will start numbering.
