Here's how to fix that problem in Word:

- On the menu, go to Tools.
- Choose Options.
- Choose the View tab.
- A bit under halfway down, under the Print and Web Layout Options,
see an option called White space between pages (print view only).
Check the box.
- Click OK. Your document (and all future documents you create) should
your margins.
