(1) Give all your figures a caption.
(2) Click your cursor to where you’d like to place your List of Figures.
(NOTE: Microsoft calls the same list “Table of Figures” unfortunately. What if you need to create a list of tables? Should you call that a “Table of Tables”?)
The traditional location is right after the Table of Contents (if any) and before the “List of Tables” (if any).
(3) Select Insert > Reference > Index and Tables from the main menu to display the Index and Tables dialog box:
(4) Click and select the Table of Figures tab:
(5) Clear the “use hyperlinks” check-box if you do not want to jump to the HTML destination accidentally.
(6) Select the “show page numbers” check-box. Select the “right align page numbers” check-box. Select a Tab Leader from the drop-down list.
(7) Select “Figure” from the Caption drop-down list. Then select the related “include name and number” check-box.
(8) Select a template from the Formats drop-down list.
(9) Click OK to display your List of Figures at where your cursor is.
