How should I insert page number on top right for new chapter and below center for other pages in Ms Word?
Use the Page Setup dialog Layout tab to specify Different first page for the Headers and footers. You can then define a first page header to include the page number field code in the upper right. For all other pages just define your footer with the page number centered. (You can use the Page Number dialog in the Header & Footer ribbon but youll have more control and can add other elements if you insert it within a header or footer. Use Insert Quick Parts Field and choose Page.) This will only work if each chapter is in its own section. Set it up at the beginning of your document then use Page Layout Breaks and choose a suitable page break. If you are printing on one side only Next Page will be fine but if you are printing on 2 sides you may want to insert the Odd Page break to ensure that your new chapter starts on an odd numbered page only (i.e. it will be recto or on the right side when the thesis is opened). Word will automatically insert a blank left page if the previous chapter ends on an odd page. If you have already created your thesis with page breaks between chapters set up the page headers and footers for the first chapter then change each manual page break to an appropriate section break.

How do I add the page number on a Word document along with the page header?
How do I insert a page number without removing the header? italic Easy open the header and add the PAGE field code to wherever you want it. horizontal-rule That the best italic way to do it but it is not the way Word user interface tends to ge people. Instead most people learn to use options from the Insert Page Number drop-down menu to insert an automatic page number with various formatting options already set up. That works but it normally wipes out any existing header (or footer). Moreover depending on which of the many options you choose you may end up with a page number within a floating box or shape associated with the header. (Hard to understand why Microsoft developers decided that italic would be the easier method) Instead create the header you want and where you need a page number press Ctrl-F9 to add the field code braces then page . Select the footer and press Alt-F9 to toggle from the field code view to the result. Your page number will be there. You could also use Insert Quick Parts Field and scroll down to select the Page field code. This gives you additional options to set the page number format and doesn need the toggle step. Why would you want to manage it yourself? italic Because you have more control. Consider the following header strategy for a book Your Header style could be set up with a centered tab (for the chapter and book title) and a right tab at the right margin. The Footer style could just be set centered. In the Page Setup dialog Layout tab you turn on both the Different odd and even and Different first page checkboxes to allow you to have the 3 headers and one footer described above. The first page header would be empty but as noted with space before of 72pt to push the chapter title down on the chapter starting pages. The first page footer would just be the Page field code. The Even page header would be Page field code tab chapter title. The Odd page header would be tab book title tab Page field code. And if you use styles for the chapter number and title you can use StyleRef field codes to automatically pull the chapter number and title so you won need to define new even page headers for each chapter.
