Memo to Microsoft: Widen Your Margins

Advertisement

This was pointed out to me by my friend, Chad Washburn, at the Naples Botanical Gardens in Florida.

Microsoft Word's default margins are set at 1.25. That's pretty wide folks. Think how much paper you can save by simply resetting all the computers in your office to, say, .75?

You can do it yourself, of course. Just click on "File", then "Page Setup". You'll see the fields for margins. Makes your changes and click "okay".

One midsize organization stands to save reams and reams of paper each year by doing this one simple thing. Imagine if Microsoft changed their defaults at the factory.
