Adjusting Web Page Margins in Dreamweaver

Print Friendly

If you’re designing a web page and want the content to butt to the left and top edges of the browser window without leaving a margin then this is for you.

I set this on every web page I create. Most websites that float the content in the middle of the browser window will not require the change in settings – just the ones that have background images or the actual content running to the edge of the broswer window.

In Dreamweaver there are three ways to get to the Page Properties window. With your web document open; do one of the following:

  1. click on Page Properties… button on the Properties Window – if you have that palette open.
  2. under the Modify menu select Page Properties… – if you like using menus.
  3. use the quick key cmd J (Mac) or control J (PC) – my preferred method.

In the Page Properties window, under the Appearance Category; type 0‘s (zeros) in all the margin boxes and click OK.

That’s it! Your done. Now the browser content will be borderless.
