Answer

To get rid of the date,

  • go to File and select Print
  • at the bottom, click Edit Header and Footer.
  • Even though Date and Time is not selected, it will still print out, so select Date and Time,
  • choose Fixed, and then delete all the text from the box.
  • Click Apply to All.

To get rid of the page number,

  • go to View.
  • Click Handout Master.
  • Uncheck the box for Page Number. The same method will also work to get rid of the date in the upper right hand corner.
