Q. Where is the toolbar option for header and footer to properly format the second page of the APA?


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

1. Click on Insert at the top of the Microsoft Word.  Select Header.  Select Edit Header.

2. Click the box for Different First Page so that you can still include the words Running head on the first page, but take them off all subsequent pages.

3.  If you want to set the Page Number, that option is there to the right of Header.
