Resize Windows 7 Columns Shortcut

Note: This tip is for Windows Explorer, and will not work in Internet Explorer

Sure, you could move your mouse pointer in between each column and manually resize, but where’s the fun in that? Let’s learn a quick keyboard shortcut that will automatically resize the columns to their most optimal size, instead.

JustĀ  press Ctrl and the Plus (+) sign on your keyboard’s number pad.


Ta-da! Instantly resized columns that fit the information within perfectly!
