  • Could you please let me know why do you want to adjust the column width. In SharePoint 2010 list standard view, it is adjusted automatically according to your text width. I typed in a long sentence, the column is expanded so that the whole sentence is displayed.

  • While they may auto adjust to what it thinks is a correct width, far too often it allocates way too much room and that causes lists with 4 columns to be much longer than they need to be and without the ability to adjust them, lists look strange. http://twitpic.com/23ro09/full is an example of the first column having been allocated too much room.

  • SharePoint Designer will allow you to customize column widths by customizing the XSLT.

    Sharepoint Designer has saved shows in Design View that I have altered the column width but the view my browser remains unchanged...
