Q. How do I set page numbering so page 1 starts on the second page and continues from there?

This is a good thing to know if you are using a cover page.


Step 1. go into the Header area. You can get there by either double clicking on the top part of your page, or by going into the view tab and clicking Header

Step 2. left click "Different First Page"

Step 3. Left click the "Page Number" button and then left click "Format Page numbers"

Step 4. Make Starting at: begin with the number 0

Step 5. Go to the header on page 2 and left click "Page Number" and insert your page number in with the choice you want. You should see the number 1 even though it is on page 2 of the Word document
