No Header or Missing Header in Microsoft Word


Very bizarre, right? You open your brand new version of Word and you can't see the header! Well, the footer's not there either, but this is not as readily apparent.

So, we open Word and here's what we see. We can't move up any further and there's no header space showing, even though we know we have a one-inch header up there.

Microsoft decided to give us yet another confusing feature, and who asks for this stuff anyway?

The culprit is in the View tab under Tool Options. Just check the box White space between pages (Print view only).

Ahhh! Back to normal!
