How to insert page numbers and a table of contents using Microsoft Word 2010

To insert page numbers go to the “Insert” tab and then click “Page Number”. Here you can choose if you want to have it at the top or the bottom of the page. I prefer to have it in the bottom of the page on the right hand side. And then click to close the footer.
Now as you can see, I now have a page number on my cover page. I don’t want to have this, so I’ll double-click the page number and then I’ll just select “Different First Page” and then click “Close”.

And now for the final step, we want to insert a table of contents. I’ll go to the first page, click “References”, [click] “Table of Contents” and then I’ll select this second one.

And here it is! We are now done!
