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.
How do I change the default font for things like page numbers, headers, footers, footnotes, and endnotes?

If the current template is the Normal template and you select the Add to template option below, all of your ordinary new documents will reflect the style changes that you make.
Search and replace works for more than just text content. In Microsoft Word, you can search and replace how text looks, too. For example, you can make all the bolded text italicized instead. The secret knob is the More dropdown in the Search and Replace dialog box.
