Since your computer screen shows the information in a format that does not look
professional, you need to learn how to “widen the column width” and how to
“center the information” in a group of cells. Here is how you can do those two steps:
1.4.2 Changing the Width of a Column
Objective : To make a column width wider so that all of the
information fits inside that column
If you look at your computer screen, you can see that Column B is not wide enough
so that all of the information fits inside this column. To make Column B wider:
Click on the letter, B , at the top of your computer screen
Place your mouse pointer on your computer at the far right corner of B until you
create a “cross sign” on that corner
Left-click on your mouse, hold it down, and move this corner to the right until it is
“wide enough to fit all of the data”
Take your finger off the mouse to set the new column width (see Fig. 1.4 )
Then, click on any empty cell (i.e., any blank cell) to “deselect” column B so that
it is no longer a darker color on your screen.
When you widen a column, you will make all of the cells in all of the rows of this
column that same width .
Now, let’s go through the steps to center the information in both Column A and
Column B.
