Changing Margins and Page Orientation
By default, text in a Word document is formatted in portrait orientation , which means the
page is longer than it is wide (like a typical business letter). In Portrait orientation, the
default margins are 1.25 inches for the left and right margins and 1 inch for the top and
bottom margins. In landscape orientation , the page is wider than it is long, with slightly
different margins, so that text spans the widest part of the page.
When working with margins, note that the numbers on the ruler indicate the distance
in inches from the left margin, not from the left edge of the paper. You can change both
page margins and page orientation from within the Page Setup dialog box.
