How can I have different footers for different pages in Word 2010? If I change a footer in a page, all footers in other pages are changed as well.

I dont think that there is an easy way to do this but what you have to do is you need to put breaks in between the pages. (Page Layout tab > Breaks > "Next Page" on the drop down menu). When your new page comes up, bring out the footer on the second page (double clicking on the bottom of the page) and on the Design menu that pops up on top of your menus deselect "Link to Previous" (same thing can be done to the header).

This should enable you to put a different header for each page.

If someone knows an easier way please enlighten us.

If you break the document into "Sections" by inserting section breaks, you can then have different footers in each section.

If your posts are downvoted this means they lack explanation or are unclear. You could edit them to provide screenshots, a more detailed description of what to do, etc. For example, here it would be very nice if you could just show us how to "put gutters" and how to "put boxes with content", even if might be obvious to you. – slhck Dec 3 '12 at 10:30
