Method 1

Using Mouse to Drag to Your Liking

One of the most used computer tools is the Mouse. Let’s see how we can use the mouse to make our Cells the same in size in Excel.

⬇️⬇️ STEPS ⬇️⬇️

  • First, select the column you want to make the same in size. In this case, we select Cell B4 and then stretch the selection to the end of the column which is B10.
  • Afterward, we come to the Column Header where we can see the names of the columns and place our mouse pointer to the corner of most of the column Border. Here, we took our pointer to Column B, and as soon as we took it to the corner between Column B and C, the pointer changed its shape.
  • Then, we drag our Column to the right to adjust our column size just like in the video.

Double-Clicking Mouse

Dragging the Mouse to resize your cells may be fun, but there’s a shortcoming with it. Sometimes you might drag too far or too little, therefore you have to repeat as long as the problem remains. But there is also another way to make your cells the same in size in Excel so that the cells fit with the data. Let’s learn that.

⬇️⬇️ STEPS ⬇️⬇️

  • First, we need to select the Row we want to resize. We can do that in one click. Just take your mouse pointer to the Row Header and Click the Row number you want to change.
  • Next, instead of dragging, we place our pointer on the border of the Row Header and double-click the Mouse. You will see your Row’s size has been perfectly adjusted to your data size.

Naturally, the same process can be used to adjust your Column size.

Method 3

Utilizing Format Feature from Ribbon

Another method we can use is the Ribbon where we have the Format command under the Home Tab. We can apply the Format feature to adjust cell size to a specific size.

⬇️⬇️ STEPS ⬇️⬇️

  • Select your desired cells. In our example, we are selecting the range B4:E10. If Your Table is much bigger than our example, try clicking the top left cell of your required selection and pressing down on the Shift key, click on the bottom right cell of your required selection.
  • Now, Go to the Home tab where you will find Format at the right corner of the Ribbon. Click on that and you will find Column Width.

  • First, Go to File Tab, click on it and Excel will show its Backstage view.


  • Here, at the left-down corner, you will see Options.
