# fancyhdr top page number

I am using following commands for page number in the upper right corner 0.5 inch from the top and 1 inch from the right edge of the paper. How to update the below mentioned command to get that setting.

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}
\fancypagestyle{plain}{%
\fancyhf{}%
}

• If it is only page number, there are other easy methods like eso-pic and background etc. Are you interested? – user11232 Feb 10 '15 at 2:53

• Please complete your code snippet to a minimal working example (MWE). Solutions will depend on your documentclass and how you set-up page dimensions. – Andrew Swann Feb 10 '15 at 8:53

While you have many options like eso-pic etc, here is one with background package.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{background}
\usepackage{kantlipsum}
\backgroundsetup{
position=current page.north east,
nodeanchor=north east,
hshift=-1in,
vshift=-0.5in,
angle=0,
firstpage=true,
scale=1,
opacity=1,
color=black,
contents={\thepage},
}
\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{document}
\kant[1-100]
\end{document}
