Step 1:

Now you gotta start off by creating a new document so, click on ‘New’, and then select google docs from the list.

Step 2:

A new blank page will open up. Now add some text or content onto it. The more easy way will be taking an already written thing and using it. So just copy some text, come to a blank page, right-click on it and click on paste or you may write some if you want. Its completely upon you.

Step 3:

When you do it, you will see that between your text and your page border there is a gap on both sides from left to right.

Step 3:

Now depending on you, you may want the gap to be larger or smaller. Now assuming it to be an environment-friendly document, let’s say you have to lessen up space so as to save paper. It may be that at times you are following a certain principle or pattern you may want the font to be even larger but the process in both the cases goes simultaneous.

Step 4:

Now to do this, click on ‘File’ on the top left upper corner, a drop-down will appear and then click on Page Setup.
