locked Editing footers in Word documents

Janet Brandly

I haven’t had to edit footers but I have had to edit headers. I’m using Office 365, Windows 10, and the latest stable version of NVDA.


From within the main document press AltV for the View menu then H for header. This will place your curser within the header where you can edit it. Just press Escape to go back into your main document. I’m sure you can get to the footer from the View menu but I don’t know the keyboard shortcut. Perhaps F?


Hope this helps,
