I am looking to increase the column width in a list created in MSO 365, but do not know how to customize the column width SPD2013 platform. SPD2010 you could simply click and drag to widen the column. Any help would guidance would be appreciated!

In Sharepoint 2013 the Design View was removed from the SharePoint Designer. Any visual changes including changing the column widths have to be made in the css code.

See this post for more of the lost functionality in sharepoint 2013.

Thank you for your comment. Now, I will go search how to build a CSS for column widths! Life was so much easier with SPD2010.

My apologies. Thank you for your posts. I have reviewed all three articles you have providing. I still need to work on the custom code for the view. All articles are leading me in the right direction, so has been helpful. I am not a programmer by career, but need and want to learn for future customizations for views in SharePoint Designer 2013!

I believe the question was answered, it has to be done via css code. If that is not enough the question should be deleted.
