A question in the Microsoft Word application. Having trouble

Customer Question

A question in the Microsoft Word application. Having trouble finding the steps to create a different headed for a page. In my document I would like the first page to have a slightly different header than the other pages. A the moment I can only have the
same header for all pages in the Word document. I do believe there is a way to have a different header on the first page and then the same shared header on the other pages.

Hi there and welcome and sorry about the delay

To do this

Open the First Page Header or Footer
Double-click on the header on the first page. This opens the Header or Footer Workspace.
Check Different First Page, on the Design tab on the Header & Footer Tools , in the in the Options group.

This then sets it different for the first page.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
