Objective / Info: Add content to cells in an Excel spreadsheet and auto fit the columns width to fit the content.

Open Excel by clicking the icon on desktop or start menu.

Row 1 has been populated with a long sentence. Notice that the sentence overlaps columns B through I. Once we use the auto fit column width feature, the column will automatically adjust to display all of the contents in a single column.
Select column A by left clicking on it.
The column should have adjusted itself to fet perfectly around any content in the column.
  Note : If there had been multiple rows of content, the column would have adjusted to the width of the widest cell.

While column A is selected, move your mouse to the right hand side of the screen and left click the "Format" button.
Select the "AutoFit Column Width" option from the drop down menu.

This task should be complete. Review the steps if you had any issues and try again.Submit questions or request for more guides in the questions section below.
