Inserting a Cover Page in Word 2007

Word 2007 makes it easy for you to customize the look of your documents. The predefined styles help you create professional looking documents. And, with Live Preview, you can try out different formatting options without actually changing your document.

But one of the handiest features in Word 2007 is the Cover Page option. Word 2007 includes a number of preformatted cover pages that you can insert with a few clicks of your mouse.
