You're working in a long document, but you have to leave for the day. When you come back tomorrow, wouldn't it be nice to open the document, and then quickly return to the spot where you stopped? Press Shift-F5 and you're there! In fact, you can repeat the key combo to go to the last three places in the document where you made changes.
The dialogue box for adding page numbers is found under Word's Insert menu with the Page Numbers option. This box lets you choose where you want the numbers to appear on the page and how they should look. Click into each section to adjust the page numbers for that chapter.
Uncheck the box next to "Show number on first page" in the Page Numbers box. This will remove the page number from the first page of your document. Handy if you've got a cover page.

You can use the scroll button on your mouse to zoom in and out of documents quickly. Just hold down the Ctrl key and roll the scroll wheel forward to get a closer view of the document, or roll it back to shrink it.
