Inserting a Cover Page

When you’ve spent time and energy making the inside of your report look great, you may want to add a professional cover page to give the entire document a polished look. A well-designed cover page makes a good first impression and gives readers important information about what they’ll see inside your document.

Insert the Cover Page

  1. On the Insert tab, click the Cover Page button, and in the gallery that appears click the cover page you want.

  2. Switch to Print Layout view if you aren’t already in that view, press Ctrl+Home to move to the beginning of your document, click in an area that needs to be completed, and type the required information. Repeat these actions for all the other areas that need to be completed.

  3. If you’re not happy with the design of the cover page, do any of the following:

    • On the Insert tab, click Cover Page, and choose another design.

    • On the Page Layout tab, click Themes, and choose a different theme.

    • Add a picture, a drawing, fields, text, or other items to customize the page.

    • On the Insert tab, click Cover Page, and choose Remove Current Cover Page to delete the cover page.

  4. Save your document.
