This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Maybe one should add for clarification that from a typographical point of view it considered bad style to just set all margins to an identical fixed value. In typography the page margins are at a specific geometric relation compared to for example the page aspect ratio and other things. For some more explanation compare for example the KOMA Script Guide, Section " Fundamentals of Page Layout". – Benedikt Bauer Jan 22 '13 at 0:01

Adding this to the header of your document will set a 0.25in margin for every side of the page:
