This module starts with bookmarks and hyperlinks, which can help you as a document author or your document readers get around in the document. Then we’ll look at how to insert a standard table of contents and update a table of contents. We’ll also learn how to add a cover page.
We’ll take a look at captions, footnotes, and endnotes to provide additional information about certain types of content. Then you’ll learn how to track and cite sources you use for your bibliography.

Insert a Standard Table of Contents
A table of contents gives your document a professional polish. It also helps your reader get around in the document.
Here’s how to insert a standard table of contents.
The Table of Contents includes the text from paragraphs in your document that have a built-in heading style of Heading 1, Heading 2, or Heading 3 applied. It also includes the page number where those styles appear.
Update a Table of Contents
Word does not automatically update the Table of Contents page numbers or text. So if you change the headings in your text or add or remove content that changes the page numbers, you’ll want to update the table of contents.
Here’s how to update a table of contents.
Insert a Cover Page
A cover page creates your first impression for readers of your document. Use one of Word’s built-in cover pages to create one with minimal formatting and design work.
Here’s how to insert a cover page.
Using Captions, Footnotes and Endnotes

Add a Figure or Table Caption
Captions provide a consistent way to label figures and tables in your document. Using captions for figures or tables allows them to be automatically numbered. This way, if captions are added, deleted, or moved, Word will handle updating the numbering.
Here’s how to add a figure or table caption. Use the following procedure.
Modify Caption Properties
You can change the label, position, and numbering style to modify your caption properties.
Here’s how to modify caption properties.
Add a Footnote
Footnotes provide additional information at the bottom of the page.
Here’s how to add a footnote.
Word inserts a number at the cursor location. It is already formatted as a superscript font. Word also inserts a line and the matching number at the bottom of the page. It also places the cursor so that you can type the footnote text.
Add an Endnote
Endnotes appear at the end of the document (or chapter) instead of at the bottom of the page.
Here’s how to add an endnote.
Word inserts a number at the cursor location. It is already formatted as a superscript font. Word also inserts a line and the matching number at the end of the document. It also places the cursor so that you can type the endnote text.
Modify Footnote and Endnote Properties
You can modify the format and layout of your footnotes and endnotes.
Here’s how to modify footnote and endnote properties.
