How to adjust margins in Microsoft Excel

In this tutorial we will learn how to adjust margins in Microsoft Excel. Excel provides a convenient way to adjust margins, which can be accessed from the Page Layout tab on the ribbon menu. You can choose from a range of predefined margin options or customize your margins according to your specific needs. You can also adjust how the margins will look before printing by using the Print Preview feature.
