Something has happened to the top margin when I open a new doc. in Word, it is gone.  The ruler on the left starts a zero, I try to change in page setup and it will not reappear.

Are you talking about the print preview?
The margin on the right will always start at zero regardless of the paper size or the top margins in the print setup.

If you use the print layout view, you will see all.  Bottom left corner or View Print Layout View.

I've had this a couple of times (so far unexplained). Fix it by selecting 'View'>"header & Footer". Then click anywhere in the main body of the document

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Steve ice:

that worked with the header and footer, but when I exit and open word again the top margin is still not showing up.

See Tools/Options, view tab. There is a relevant checkbox labelled 'White space between pages (Print view only).
You can also toggle it by clicking the border between pages.

Position the cursor between two pages: if it changes to a "Show white space" icon (two arrows in boxes), click it. This toggles the display of the unused space at the page  top and bottom edges.

Scooped by Graham once again! I had the page open earlier on but by the time I submitted my comment, it refreshed with Graham's similar answer already there...

Eric, I've done that so often myself.
However the clarity of your description is enviable.
