How to Set Page Margins Using Microsoft Word 2000


If you create documents that need to be bound together, it is useful to create and customize your margins. Sometimes you may discover that your default margins are too large or too small, depending on what type of binding you choose. Your Microsoft Word 2000 settings allow you to set your margins to a customized setting.

  • Open the document that you wish to add the page margins to. Click on the menu bar and choose "File," "Page setup" and "Margins." Note the margins on the left and right of your document. The right "Preview" window lets you see your current document settings.

  • Check to see if the "mirror margins" box is checked. Mirror margins allow you to see the inside and outside margins for the right page while simultaneously creating a mirror image of those margin settings on the left. Documents that will be printed using "double-sided" will use mirror margins the most. If you do not wish to use this feature, uncheck this option.

  • Change the inside and outside margins to settings that you desire. You have the option to change the top, bottom, inside and outside margins. The preview window will automatically update with a preview of your settings. Click the down arrow next to "Apply to" and choose "whole document."

  • Click "OK" to preview your document. If you like your settings, save your document and close it.
