I'm writing an essay, and the first page is a cover page. Obviously, there shouldn't be a number there. How do I get rid of it so that there's still numbers on the other pages?

One of two ways.

Make the cover page in its own file, separately from the file in which the rest of the paper is written and saved.

If you are using Word, go into View >> Header and Footer and go into the setup for page numbers. There should be a box to check for "different first page." Make sure it's checked. (The only problem with this, though, is that the title page is still counted as page 1, and your text will start being numbered as page 2 and onward.)
