Click on "Margins" tab to change the margin settings by number. Generally left and right margins range between .5" and 1.0". Click the numbers accordingly to change.
Click the "Paper Size" tab which is to the right of the "Margins" tab in that same dialog box.

Apply changes to all or part of the document by using the drop down arrow towards the bottom and click "OK."
Click the "Paper Source" tab to change the printer your Word document is going to. Click "OK" to save your changes.
