Microsoft Word

I am typing up a document, but want the cover page to have separate formatting than the rest of the paper.  WHat i mean is I dont want the headers and footers to add to the Title page.  How do I segment this page from these features from the rest of the document?

It is called sections - insert a Page Break..  Insert Menu or Tab..

What version of Word are you using?


Page Layout tab>Page Setup group> bottom right hand arrow: This will open the Page Setup dialogue. Select the Layout tab and click the 'Different first page' checkbox.
The Header and Footer for the first page will then be independent of the rest of the document.

If I first Add a Cover Page (this is a Word function) and then second add (say) Footer, another Word Function, the First Page Footer is different than the rest.

If I leave the first page footer blank it is does not show, but the remaining footers show.  And then you can start numbering on page 2.

So I think it is just a matter of doing it in order.

You can also use the page Setup option, select Layout tab and check the Different first page box.

However, his option will carry over into EACH NEW SECTION of your document. So if you create a new section for each chapter, say, the first page of each chapter will have no header/footer either.
