Default how can i create captions & table of figures

1- how can i create a caption for a figure and give it a number as (Figure
1.1) and let the word continue numbering the other figures automatically as
(Figure 1.2 , Figure 1.3 , tec) in each time i'm inserting a caption ? what
i'm doning now is writing the figures with the numbers manually !

2- when i was trying to create a table of figure it gave me a massege that
no nfigures found , i choosed one of the figures and arranged it as ( inline
with text) it appeares with the caption but without the number of the figure!
Like that (
Figure 0:1Multi -Stage Flash Plant 13)

how can i do that easily and faster !

Thanks
Tahani

Insert | Reference | Caption for the first question. If your figures are
wrapped, the caption will be inserted (by default) in a text box. If this is
Word 2003 or earlier, the Table of Figures can't see captions in a text box
(yep, smart programming), so you need to either (a) insert both the figure
and the caption inline (In Line With Text) or (b) put the caption in a frame
instead or (c) put both figure and caption together in a frame. FWIW, (a) is
preferable when possible, but if you *must* wrap text around a figure and
caption, then (c) is the best option.
