Add APA Page number in MS Word with 3 Easy Steps

While writing documents or preparing a project report, it becomes mandatory to serialize all pages. MS word has the option to give a serial number to the pages. The page numbers can be at the header or footer of the page with alignment options and style. An option is available to choose the starting number or type of number e.g. roman, alphabetical, etc.

Here is step by step process to Add and Remove Page Numbers:
