White space (Margins) disappear in Word document

Question: I used to have margins or white space appearing at the top of my document, but now my text comes up at the top. How can I get it back?

Answer: The most common reason it happened is due to accidentally double-clicking in the top or bottom edge of your document. To get it back, simply double click at the top or bottom of your document to get it back. Another way to get it back is to go to File > Options > Display and place a check to Show white space between pages in Print Layout view. You can change the default to no white space out of the box by setting the White Space Between Pages In Print Layout View option in the Display options. However, you can still reset it with a simple double-click.
