Default how do i make the view of word document larger

maybe i wasn't clear. i know how to change the normal.dot. but i don't know
how to make the change i need. i want to open a new document so it fills the
whole screen. right now the whole ruler of 7" across takes up only 2 inches
and it leaves a gray background. how do i make it so the ruler goes across
the whole screen?
thanks
