Hello,

a SharePoint list view will always stretch across the available width of the screen. You cannot adjust the width of the columns in the list view. If you need more control over the display, insert a DVWP on a web part page with SharePoint Designer. The DVWP has a table structure and the width of the table columns can be manipulated with the usual attributes.

cheers, teylyn
