Default page numbers on left side and right side

On the layout tab of the Page Setup dialog, check the Different Odd and Even
box.

If you are using Insert | Page Numbers, select Inside (though Outside is
more conventional). If you are inserting the page number in the header or
footer (View | Header and Footer), then go to the Layout tab of Page Setup
and check the box for "Different odd and even." Then place the PAGE field
appropriately in the Odd Page Header/Footer and Even Page Header/Footer.
