How to Change Page Margins on a Kindle Paperwhite

One of the greatest things about the Kindle Paperwhite, or any other e-ink reader as a matter of fact, is that it offers users a wide range of customization options. The same could not be said of real books. If you are an avid reader like me, you will probably be ever on the hunt for ways through which to get the best out of your device. There are so many tweaks that you can carry out on the Kindle Paperwhite, including changing the font type and the font size, changing the screen orientation and changing the spacing on your screen. Another thing that you can do is change the page margins. This allows you to have either more or fewer text on your screen. So, how do you change the page margins on a Kindle Paperwhite?

How to Adjust Page Margins on a Kindle Paperwhite

To change the page margins on a Kindle Paperwhite, you need to do the following;

  1. Go to a page on the book that you are reading.
  2. Click on the top of the screen to bring down the menu.
  3. Click on “Page Display.”
  4. Click on “Font and Page Settings.”
  5. Click on “Page.”
  6. Under “Margins,” choose the mode that you are most comfortable with.

Available modes

The first mode that’s available on the Paperwhite gives you the greatest in terms of margins on the screen. The next reduces the margins while the last mode reduces the margins even further. This is the mode that I use on my Kindle Paperwhite. This last mode gives you a lot more in terms of text on the screen. However, you are free to choose any mode that you are most comfortable with.

Why increase the margins?

I don’t really know while anyone would prefer to have their screen restricted to a narrow band on the center of the device while reading. But then, it’s a matter of personal preference.
