How to Change the Default Page Margins in Excel
1. Open Microsoft Excel and click 'File' on the top of the window. Select 'New' from the File menu. This will open a new Excel workbook.
2. Click 'File,' 'Page Setup' and 'Margins.' Enter a size, in inches, for each margin including the sides, header and footer. Click 'Save' on the bottom of the page.
3. Click 'File' on the top of the window and select 'Save As.' Type 'Book.xlt' into the box beside 'File Name' and select 'Template' from the drop-down menu for the file type.
4. Choose the location to which you are saving this template by navigating to the 'XLStart' folder in the window above the file name box. The exact location of this file on your hard drive can vary, so you will need to search your hard drive beforehand to know where it is located. Click 'Save.'
