Changing column widths of all Excel columns

When you have entered data into Microsoft Excel, you may want to change all column widths to exactly fit the width of the largest entry in each column; in some cases, this may make columns narrower and help when it comes to printing.

To change all columns to optimum width, click in the space to the left of column A and above row 1, to select the whole worksheet; alternatively press Ctrl + A. Go to the join between any two columns at the top of the columns and double-click. All columns will adjust so that data within the columns will fit to best width.
