If you have guidelines to follow regarding margin size, want to format the paper for a clipboard or book, or simply want to save paper with wide margins, Word makes it easy to change them.
To get started, go to the Layout tab on the Ribbon and click the Margins drop-down. There’s a few default settings, but if you want more control, click Custom Margins…
To change the actual margins, simply edit the corresponding value in the Margins section.
If you would like to have a book fold gutter, click Book Fold under the Multiple pages drop-down. To specify how large of a gutter, change the Gutter option in the Margins section to a value other than 0”.
If you want to print out the document for use on a clipboard, make sure Multiple pages is set to Normal, and then change the Gutter position to Top.
As this is the Page Setup pop-up, there are also options to change Paper size for example.
Under the final tab of Page Setup, there are options to change the margins of the headers and footers.

Thank you for good tutorial. But I will problem about margins that I do not understand.
When I go to layout and try to change the margin settings from regular to narrow to wide, it makes no change whatsoever in the margins that already have. That’s one issue.
The next issue is that, almost every time I open a document, the margin will have changed from 8 ½ to sometimes 101/4 sometimes 6 ¼, etc.
This place havoc to any document formatting where I wish to use quotes and indent them.
Thank you again,
