how to write an essay


Each page of your essay must contain a header displaying your last name and the page number. In case a page of your essay gets misplaced, we'll know exactly where it goes. The header is also part of the professional MLA format. To insert a header, follow these three steps:

Step One. Click on Header and Footer under the View menu.

Step Two. In the header box that pops up, right align the cursor and type your last name and space once.

Step Three. On the Header and Footer menu bar, click the Insert Page Number icon. The page number will now appear on each page of your document.

Congratulations, you're done! To view your header after closing the box, go to view>layout properties.
