just point your mouse cursor on the border of the columns so cursor will change and double-click

Method 1:

1. Highlight column A
2. Place cursor on line between "A" and "B" so that you have the arrow pointing both left and right
3. While holding down mouse button drag to right until you have desired width

Method 2. (similar to Method 1)

1. Highlight column A
2. Place cursor on line between "A" and "B" so that you have the arrow pointing both left and right
3. Double click mouse to automatically expand the width of column A to length of cell with max data

Method 3. (same as method 2 except does all desired columns at same time)

1. Highlight column A through desired column (K in your case)
2. Place cursor on line between "A" and "B" so that you have the arrow pointing both left and right
3. Double click mouse to automatically expand the width of all desired colmuns to length of cell in each column with the max data

Method 4. (will adjust all columns)

1. Click small square above "1" and left of "A" (this will highlight entire sheet)
2. Dobule click mouse to automatically expand/reduce the width of all columns to length of cell in each column with the max data
