Another way you can restrict a header or footer to the first page only is as follows:
Click on File
then Page Setup
and then click on the Page Layout
The second section down on that tab says Headers and Footers
. Click on the little box by First Page Only
to put a check mark there. Now, your first page header will appear only on the first page. NOTE: If you have several sections in your paper, this will cause the first page header or footer to appear on the first page of every section unless you unlink the headers or footers. In order to unlink them, Click on View
then Header and Footer
. On the tool bar that pops up, click on the little icon third from the left on the bottom. I have it boxed in reddish purple in the picture below.
That way, you can have a separate header or footer for the first page of every section and yet other headers for pages 2-section end for each section. You will also have to unlink the headers and footers for the pages following each section's first page if you want a different header or footer from the 2+ pages in the previous sections.
