Microsoft Word has a glitch that makes it seem like you can only have page numbers OR a running header—not both. But you can. Here’s how.

#1. Create your running header under the Insert tab
Click on the Page Number icon.

#2. Select Top of Page then choose the far right position option

#3 Type in your last name, leaving a space before the page number. (The cursor should automatically be in the correct position.)
