Column width is based on how the dom / CSS is active. Webpart view of a list is build up in a other way. If you want to manipulate the column width you can create a page and alter with css the column width... however this can easy be "broken"  if something on the page changed. In SharePoint online you can use column formating since recently. I hope and expect that will also come to the on prem version of SP2016 in a update.


Thanks will wait for Online.
