  2. Column Width in List View in File Explorer

    I went through all of the above steps, but sadly this doesn't work when viewing folders in *list* view. Any idea how to adjust the column widths there?

    Up until a couple of months ago the column widths were always simply equal to the longest name in the column or the longest name in the folder. Now there is a couple of extra centimetres in there for no discernible reason.

    You can manually adjust the widths for each by placing your mouse cursor on the line separating each detail and you will see a > I or + <, then hold down left mouse button and slide left or right.

    Excel column width

    Is there an easy way to change the column width on Excel using WP7? I copy files over from my PC where the data fits inside the column width but when I open on WP7 I see "xxxxxxxxx" in the column meaning the data won't fit. I've tried moving columns with
    my fingernail after enlarging the spreadsheet but can't get it to do anything. Is the only approach to make the columns wider on the PC version first?
