  • (This question would be more suitable for the Microsoft Answers forums.)

    Activate the Insert tab of the ribbon.

    In the Header & Footer group, click Page Number > Format Page Numbers...

    Under Page Numbering, select Start at (instead of the default Continue from previous section), and enter 5 in the box.

    Click OK.
