Word 2010 makes it easy to generate a Table of Contents for your document. Although it’s not a new feature in Word 2010, the steps to insert a TOC are slightly different from previous versions.

To insert a TOC in Word 2010:

  1. Within your document, place the cursor where you want to insert the TOC.
  2. Click the References tab followed by Table of Contents.
  3. Click Table of Contents.
  4. Word displays the thumbnails images of the different TOC available.
  5. Select one of the predefined TOC styles.

Word automatically generates the table of contents. If you want more control over the layout of your TOC, select the Insert Table of Contents option in Step 4 and select the attributes you want to use.
