Unlike Microsoft Word where the dedicated Layout menu is available to perform various size customization, changing the document margins on Google Docs seems to be something that missing from the service.

But of course, that’s not true.

Google Docs allows you to adjust each side of a page (margin) with ease, just like on Microsoft Word. But the margin setting is kind of hidden from the main interface.

Here’s how you can change margins in Google Docs.

1. Open a Google Docs document you want to change the margin.

As an extra tip, if you are planning to print the document, be sure that the printer is stocked with the paper size that matches with the document size to avoid unintended problems on the printing result.
