I am making a book with the fancyhdr package. I have some headers that put page numbers on the top corners of the pages. On pages that are started by \chapter, LaTeX moves the line number down to the middle of the bottom of the page and removes it from the top. (Apparently it does something like changing the pagestyle to plain for a single page.) That's fine, but I want to do the same thing on a certain single page that is not a chapter beginning.

What is the command that LaTeX is using to move clear the header and show the page number in the bottom of the page for a single page?

I'd say that you could use \thispagestyle{plain}.

Using \thispagestyle{empty} would remove the page number.
