# How do I decrease page margins without being clipped to the right and the bottom?

To decrease page margins, I tried increasing these values:

``````\textwidth=7in \textheight=8in
``````

However, the text got wider and taller but the left and top margins did not decrease.

I then tried setting some other values to 0 too.

``````\topmargin = 0in \oddsidemargin = 0in \evensidemargin = 0in
``````

However, the left and top margins still exist. How do I decrease the left and top page margins?

-

``````\usepackage[a4paper,left=0in,right=0in,top=0in,bottom=0in]{geometry}
Or use any other value of the size. You can as well specify `\usepackage[a4paper,margin=0in]{geometry}`, which does exactly the same. – yo' Mar 2 '12 at 10:43
