want to change the width of the columns in Windows explorer,than try any one of these steps:-

   1. On the View menu, click Choose Details, and then click the name of the column that you want to adjust.

   2. In the Width of selected column (in pixels) box, enter the size that you want, and then click OK.


   1. Widen columns manually by positioning the mouse pointer between two border buttons of the column headings, the pointer turns into a double arrowhead.

   2. Click and hold the left mouse button, and then drag the column to the desired width.

is there a way change column width of ALL folders not just one folder at a time
