How do I change the margins in a Word doc?

April 2018

That's very simple.

1. Choose "Page Setup" from the File menu.
2. Click on the Margins tab.
3. Enter numbers in the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right boxes or use the arrows to scroll by tenths (Word uses the default measurement unit that you can also change).
