Word comes with its own default header and footers, and you can easily customise these – but you can also set your own templates in the Header Gallery and Footer Gallery, so you can re-use your preferred header and footers time and again, with just a few clicks! This is a fast and easy way to use your company branding, so you’ll never need to manually change your Header or Footer again.
