Changing Header and Footer Commands in Notepad

When you use Notepad in Windows 10, you can remove or change headers and footers. The default header and footer settings in Notepad are:

  • Headers: &f
  • Footers: Page &p

These commands give you the title of the document on the top of the page and a page number at the bottom.

These settings can't be saved, so all header and footer settings must be entered manually each time you want to print a document.

To change headers and footers

  • Choose Page Setup from the File menu and enter the desired command(s) in the Header and Footer text boxes. Here's a short list of header and footer commands: 
  • Command    Action-------    -------------------------------------- &l         Left-align the characters that follow &c         Center the characters that follow &r         Right-align the characters that follow &d         Print the current date &t         Print the current time &f         Print the name of the document &p         Print the page number
  • In the appropriate box, insert the header or footer text you want to display. (If you leave the Header or Footer text box empty, no header or footer will print.)
