When you open a Microsoft Word document the page margins are already laid out. If want to use every bit of available space in a Word document, you must change the page margins for smaller margins, or take the margins completely out for more room on a page. With a few clicks of your mouse you can get rid of page margins in Microsoft Word in a few seconds, and complete your Word document as needed.

Open Microsoft Word on your computer. A blank document will be in front of you with normal page margins.
Choose the "File" menu button, "Page Setup", and then "Margins" for older versions of Microsoft Word, such as in Windows XP. For Windows Vista users choose the "Page Layout" tab at the top of the screen and then "Margins" and "Custom Margins."
Adjust the margin settings to zero, by scrolling down to zero or typing "0" in the text box using your keyboard. Adjust the settings to zero for the top, bottom, left, right, and gutter. As you lower the page margins, you will notice the example page changing as well.
Select the "OK" button at the bottom of the window. Your page margins are set, and now you can type where the margins once were.
