Space around text and between paragraphs is part of the art of composing nice-looking document and also a sign of consideration for the reader. Progress in writing came when "illumination" was invented, aka. "losing" writing space in then-expensive paper so that text was "lighted" by empty spots.

That said, to answer your question, open the current page style. If you don't use them explicitly, the one in effect is Default Style.

Push F5 to open the styles side pane. Click on the fourth icon (Page Styles) from the left in the toolbar. Right click on the current (highlighted) style, likely to be Default Style and choose Modify.

Go to the Footer and header tabs to disable (uncheck) the footer and header. Then go to the Page tab to change the margins in order to use as much space as possible on the sheet. But, don't set them at zero because most printers need some minimal margin to mechanically guide the paper and won't print from edge to edge.

If this answer helped you, please accept it by clicking the check mark ✔ to the left and, karma permitting, upvote it. If this resolves your problem, close the question, that will help other people with the same question.
