How do I put a header on my Word document? 

1. Click the Insert tab at the top of the page. In the Header & Footer section, click the drop-down arrow for Header.

2. Select the style of header you want. Then type the text you want to appear across the top of each page in your document.

You can begin typing in the body of the document by double-clicking outside the header. To re-open the header for editing, simply double click it.

*Note: Every 2010 Word Document has an automatic header feature. If you want a standard blank header, you can simply double click at the top of your page and begin typing in the header without going through the Insert process. The same is not true for a footer.
