Terminator is right - You are in Print Layout view. Use the view menu to change the way it looks on screen and the zoom button (Currently on 100%) to alter the appearance. Tour margins look fine in the ruler bar which is just above the "paper" but see my first post to change them.

Now go to Tools>Options>View Tab and uncheck the box that says "Text Boundaries" under Print and Web Layout options - this will remove the left & right "right angle marks on your screen shot. At the end of the day these are only VIEW options - and is personal choice. To see what your document looks like when printed go to File>Print Preview or click on the icon that looks like a page of paper with a magnifying glass.

If you prefer print layout as per your picture and wish to see the width of the page go to the 100% on tool bar and change to page width.

If you are mising the ruller on the left side go to tools/options/view and put a tick in vertical rule.

In file page setup/margins adjust margin to required size and click on default, this will save all settings.

Did you uninstall the previous version before installing the legal one??? NOTE that you would probably have to "reboot" the system before re-installing office...
