margins

In word processing, the strips of white space around the edge of the paper. Most word processors allow you to specify the widths of margins. The wider the left and right margins, the narrower the page. The wider the top and bottom margins, the shorter the page.

If your word processor performs word wrap, it will automatically adjust the length of the lines when you change the widths of the margins.
