Page numbering with exception of the first page in the latest word

Copper Contributor

I would like to start my page number sequence on the 2nd page in the newest microsoft word. Anybody know how?

Hi @paulyblix,

to do this, take a look at these instructions:

Start page numbering later in your document - Microsoft Support

The link you sent me presents dialogue options that are no longer present in the newest version. For example, the older versions give you the menu option to format page numbers which would solve my problem. I know there's a way, but microsoft support it seems hasn't updated their instructions and tutorials to match this seemingly brand-new version that I just installed a few days ago. Thanks anyway
