How to change table column widths in Word
To change the width of a column in a Word table, click and drag the right border of the column. This will make the column to the right change, keeping the total width of the table the same. If you hold down Shift while dragging the border, the column to the right stays the same, changing the width of the entire table. To change the width of the column and maintain the width of the table by having ALL columns to the right change proportionately, hold down the Ctrl key while dragging the columns right border.
