How I can cancel the default browser's "Margin"?

For example: I've tag "<h1>" that has a background color, but its field has space between its border to the edge of the browser's window.

illustration:

html code. <h1>Yakov Sachuk,Web developer</h1>

css code:

h1 { background-color: grey; padding:7px; margin-left:0px; }

You're probably seeing the default body margin. Try turning that off also:

body { margin: 0; }

for that purpose, developers use, a file like a reset.css, you can get that in this link https://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/css/reset/, copy it, create the file reset.css, moreover, make sure, you call this file before the style.css file

That seems rather drastic, and some of the changes it makes might not be desirable. For example, you might not want to lose the ability to tell a paragraph from a new line.
