    ok, here is a dumb question- what if the “Cover page Icon” is not showing up… would you mind outlining how to make it show up….

    I am trying to insert a cover page. I go to the “cover page” icon, but I cannot access any templates. Doesn’t allow me to go to any cover pages. I’m using Microsoft Word 2010.
