Word's default margins are perfect for most documents you create. But, there will be times when you need to adjust the margins. Unfortunately, it isn't terribly easy to find the margin settings in Mac Word 2008.
You can use Mac Word 2008's ruler bars to change the margins. But an easier way to change the margins is to use the options in the Page Setup dialog box:
1. Click File>>Page Setup
2. Select Microsoft Word in the Settings selection box
3. Specify if you want to change the margins for the entire document or from the cursor position forward
4. Click the Margins button
5. In the box that appears, enter your desired margins. You can set options for top and bottom, along with the right and left margins.
6. Click OK.
