Add footnotes and endnotes in MS Word 2013 (other versions work similarly, but the insert Footnote or Endnote function may be in a different menu).
Writers use footnotes and endnotes in documents to explain, comment on, or provide references to something they’ve mentioned in a document. Usually, footnotes appear at the bottom of the page and endnotes come at the end of the document or section.
Add a footnote
Word inserts a reference mark in the text and adds the footnote mark at the bottom of the page.
