    Absolutely no sound. Reading the highlighted subtitles are fine, but for this type of instructions, and being a YouTube medium, having no sound is a detriment.

    I’m just a 7th grader trying to write an essay and was told to do it in MLA format, I wasn’t sure what that meant but this confused me.

    I'm completely stuck on setting this header.

    Am using Outlook's Word. I have an icon saying "Header" on the side of the essay.

    When I click on the header icon, I typed in my Last name, spaced & placed a 1 for the first page.

    I don't see it on my screen. It's in the header setting whenever I click on it, but isn't on my essay, at all. Does it show up in the end? I so far have the first page & second page with the works cited — Haven't started writing the essay yet because am setting the MLA Format.

    Having trouble with seeing the header on my essay paper.
    Any help's appreciated!

    Or…..when you open up Word just search for MLA in the templates, select it, and just delete all the extra stuff you don't need.
