Excel Autofit Shortcut: How to Quickly Adjust Column Widths

If you're working with data in Microsoft Excel, you know how important it is to keep your columns properly sized. Otherwise, your data can become difficult to read and work with. Fortunately, there's a quick and easy way to adjust column widths in Excel using the autofit feature.

To autofit a column in Excel, simply select the column you want to adjust. Then, double-click on the right-side border of the column. The column will automatically resize to fit the widest entry in the column.

You can also autofit all columns in a worksheet at once. To do this, select the entire worksheet by clicking on the small square in the upper-left corner of the worksheet. Then, double-click on any column border.

If you want even more control over column widths, you can use the Column Width dialog box. To access this dialog box, select the column or columns you want to adjust, right-click, and select Column Width from the menu. In the Column Width dialog box, you can enter a specific width for the column in characters. You can also select Auto from the drop-down menu to have Excel automatically adjust the column width.

The autofit feature in Excel is a great way to quickly adjust column widths. By taking a few seconds to autofit your columns, you can save yourself a lot of time and frustration later on.
