Change the Font Style and Size of the Page Numbers in MS-Word

If you have tried everything to make your document look different, chances are you have not tried to change the font style and size of the page numbers. Word allows you to do this in a few simple steps. Here is how you go about it:

  • Choose “Styles and Formatting” from the “Format” menu.
  • In the task pane on the right side of the screen, choose “All Styles” from the “Show” list.
  • From the “Pick Formatting to Apply” list locate “Page Numbers”.
  • You could either right click on it or click the drop down menu provided.
  • Click “Modify”. The “Modify Style” dialog box appears.
  • Make the desired changes.
  • Click “OK”.
  • Check the “Add to template” checkbox, if you want the modified style to be added to the template.

NOTE: If you don’t check this box, the modified style will affect only the document you are working on

  • Once done, click “OK”.
  • Your document will now have a new look as defined.
