Do you know how to put a footer on 2 pages of a paper but not on the first paper?


  1. First, view your footers by going to: View –> Footer
  2. Type whatever you want in your footer.
  3. Go to Format –> Document and check Different first page and select “OK”picture-3
  4. Now you can adjust your first page to be a different footer or blank by editing your footers.
