Ever get a new machine, open Microsoft Word for the first time and realize the measurements are in metric? Change WinWord from metric to imperial, how hard can it be?

ChangingWordToInchesIf you are like a lot of people, you measure your lumber with the imperial system (inches and feet). Likewise, a lot of people use that same system when it comes to their word processing…..Microsoft Word. But the last few computers I’ve gotten, for some reason the first time I open WinWord, it’s in metric (page margins are in cms). I know I like my margins at either one inch (Imperial) or when I want to maximize printable surface area, I put the margins to 0.5 all around (it’s a good balance between unprintable\inaccessible printing area on most printers in general, laser printers or ink jet).

I can’t seem to remember, I can’t explain it, I just have a mind block to it. So here is the quickest way to remember to do it. The trick is, the change is in the Advanced area of WinWord Options.


Turns out it’s really hard, if you don’t remember the little “Advanced” trick. Once you remember\recall\google\find this blog, it’s easy!
