Hi folks! Thanks to your feedback, we've added the ability to completely remove headers & footers from Google Docs. Want to put your cursor all the way at the top left corner of your document? Follow the steps below! 
 
1. Set your margins to zero under File > Page Setup.
 
2. Go back to the body of your Doc, and click on the header region to select the header. 
Alternative: if clicking does not select for you, go to Insert > Header & Page number > Header
 
3. With the region still selected, remove header by going to Format > Header & Footer > Remove header.
 
4. BONUS: Make your document a continuous page by removing print page view. Go to View > Print Layout and uncheck the Print Layout option.

S.O.S .. !!! MORNERS ... I bought a phone because the old one was broken. And so I download your Google Keep application to my phone (A newer version is appropriate). And so I open the application and I was very horrified so that all the notes over the past six months have gone missing. Although the synchronization beat turned on. What am I supposed to do??? I used to google your application, I wrote down all my thoughts, all my ideas, about the robot, all the working hours, all the books I read, I wrote everything down there. DEAR HOPE YOU ALL CORRECT ...

If you want to remove the header or footer, or even edit it, go to print, on right side bar you will see option settings. Click on Headers & footers, click EDIT CUSTOM FIELDS, and edit your Header or Footer, or just delete text.

Hi, Maria,
 
Thanks for jumping in. The instructions provided in this post explain how to remove headers/footers entirely, which is different from editing or deleting the contents of the header/footer.
