Microsoft Word is designed with a large set of integrated functions to facilitate the actions to be performed in a file with the aim of making it as professional as possible. Thanks to the possibilities offered by Microsoft Word, we can make quite interesting textual compositions that can even be presented in professional fields. Customizing our documents brings an extra effort and aesthetics to all those files or projects that we will show avoiding falling into a typical use and without grace..
One of the most essential tasks in any Word document is the insertion of headers and footers which allow us to add dates, page numbers and even custom text. In the same way when using a header or footer we can add images either personal or corporate.
One of the advantages is that Microsoft Word, both 2016 and 2019, integrates predefined designs for the header and footer that we can use as a reference point. We will learn to insert an image in both the header and the footer of Microsoft Word..
