When using Word XP headers and footers can be added to make your document stand out. Learn more about using these features here.
If you choose to delete your header or footer, Word will automatically delete the header or footer throughout the document.
You can delete the header and footer on just the first page of the document by choosing File, then Page Setup. In the Page Setup dialog box, choose the Layout tab and place a check mark next to Different First Page under Headers and Footers, then click OK.
