Hi

We say,

at the top right hand corner of the page.

at the bottom right hand corner of the page.

In general, we use:
  • at for a POINT
  • in for an ENCLOSED SPACE
  • on for a SURFACE

We say,

in the top right hand corner of the page.

in the bottom right hand corner of the page.

These are fixed expressions, so sometimes the general rules don't apply
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

Definitely remove the "hand" -- if you anthropomorphize the page, it is arguably facing you, so it's "right hand" will be on your left.

The expression "top right-hand corner" does not refer to the page's hand, but to the user's....

If you include "hand" (not a problem but not necessary) then you would say IN the top right hand corner of the page. If you don't include "hand" then you would say AT the top right corner of the page. I'm not sure why, but another poster's comment about "at" being for a point and "in" being for an enclosed space makes sense. It's almost as if adding "hand" gives you more space that you're referring to. Hope this helps!
