Start page numbers in ms word

okay I’m going to show you how you can
add page numbers to a Word document
starting at a specific page so I have an
example of the end result here where I
have a title page with no numbers I have
a table of contents with no numbering
and then with my introduction there is a

page number of one and the next page is
2 3 and so on so what you need to do for
this is scroll down to that page that
you want the numbering to start on and
you’re just going to click rate at the

very beginning of the page then go to
the page Layout tab and then over to
breaks and then down to the next page
so what that actually did was if you go
to the Home tab and then this paragraph

marks icon and click on that if you
scroll up a bit you’ll see that there’s
a section break so basically what we’ve
done is separated the word document into
two separate sections that we can kind
of format differently so I’m just going
to uncheck that now so the next step is

to go to the insert tab and then go over
to page number and I’m going to put mine
at the bottom of the page and right in
the center so now you can see it starts
at 3 but I wanted to start at 1 so what
I’m going to do is go over to here go to

page number format page numbers and
start at 1 and click OK
so the next step is to uncheck or unlink
the page that you’re on and the page
before it so just click this link to
previous just click it once and you’ll

see that it Sun highlighted now so now
you can scroll up and this is my table
of contents page and I don’t want any
numbering on here so at the very bottom
of the footer I’m just going to
highlight this too and hit the lead on
my keyboard so now you’ll see that
there’s no numbering on the table of
contents and there’s also no numbering

on any of the pages that came before it
alright so that’s it you can go to the
print preview to see it in action and
title page no numbering say with the
table of contents the introduction now
is a page number of 1 the next page is 2
so everything works perfectly that’s it
thanks for watching.
