What Are the Standard Margins for a Word Document?
The standard margins for a Microsoft Word document are 1 inch on the left and right sides of each page and 1 inch on the top and bottom of each page. Every time a new document is created in Microsoft Word, the margins are automatically set to these dimensions.
Microsoft Word 2003 and older versions have standard margins set at 1 inch on the left and right and 1.25 inches on the top and bottom. To change the size of the margins, move the sliders located at the top of the document, or set them through the Page Setup function.
