I am trying to adjust the top margin just for the cover page and I am not sure how to do it. If you see the attached file, I insert rectangle picture on the page. But I could not adjust the top of the page so that the top, left, and right margin are the same. Any inputs will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

There was no file attached to your message, so please post it. But I'll take a run at your question anyway. I have Word 2007 and 2013, but not 2010. However, I think that 2007 operates similarly to 2010, so you can probably find the margin settings in the Page Layout ribbon. Here's what it looks like in 2007:

At the bottom of the cover page, Page Layout tab -> Breaks -> Section Breaks -> Next Page.

Return to the cover page and when you follow the above procedure, make sure that you select Apply to: This section. The new margins will then apply ONLY to the cover page.

@pitachip,
Thanks to Paul's comment, I realized that I missed part of your question, namely, that you want to do this just for the cover page. For that I use the "Different first page" option for headers and footers. In the same Page Setup dialog that I posted above showing the Margins tab, there's also a Layout tab, which looks like this:
word2007 layoutNote the check-box for "Different first page"...if you check that, then you'll be able to set a header and footer for the first page, and a different header and footer for all other pages. Regards, Joe
