Q. How do you change the header after the title page?


To set the Header so the 2nd page is different in Microsoft Word:

  • Double click at the top of the document or Click on Insert.  
  • Select Header.  
  • Select Edit Header.
  • Check the box for Different First Page so that the words Running head are on the first page, but not on all subsequent pages.

To set the Page Number, that option is there to the right of Header.

Another option is to visit APA help:

  • Use the APA 6th Edition: Assignment Template
  • This is a perfectly formatted APA paper- all you have to do is type over the existing text!
