Default Page margin units

I have noticed that after selecting A4 paper, the units in page setup/margins
changed from inches to metric units. I would like to know how the get change
margin units from metric (mm, cm) to imperial (inches) and visceversa.

Thanks,

Changing paper sizes should not affect the margin measurements AFAIK.

Never has done for me but.......?

This is a Windows OS setting, not an Excel setting.

You would go to Windows Control PanelRegional and Language
OptionsRegional Options tabCustomize and set the "measurement system" to
U.S.(Imperial) or Metric.

This option will affect all programs.
