In Microsoft Word 2010:

- Select Edit Header from the dropdown menu.
- In the Design menu, click the box that says Different First Page.
- In the First Page Header box at the top of page 1, type Running head: and then your abbreviated title.
- Go to page 2 of your document and only type your abbreviated title.
- On page 1, Running head will remain in your first page header, and only your abbreviated title will appear on subsequent pages.
In Microsoft Word 2007:
For page numbers:
