How to insert a running head and page number for APA papers in Word 2013 or 2016
APA format requires a running head at the top of the first page (Title page) of an essay that is different than the running head at the top of subsequent pages. It also requires each page, including the first page (Title) to be numbered in the top right hand corner. These instructions assume you are adding the running head to a completed paper (or one that has at least 2 existing pages).
Follow these steps (TIP: follow them through to the end. Initially, it may not appear as though it's working, but trust us, it does!)
