Word: Adjust Table Columns (Auto-Fit)

You can manually adjust the width of any table; however, the following tips may allow you to fine-tune your tables with less effort.

Adjust Row and Column Sizes

Click anywhere in the table, and then select "Layout" under "Table Tools" on the ribbon. You will use the icons in the "Cell Size" group.

  • To fit the table to the page or the text, use the options under "AutoFit" in the "Cell Size" group.
  • To make each column the same width, click "Distribute Columns" in the "Cell Size" group.
