    Sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but I'm trying to shrink the width of the "Size" column. Right now it's over twice the width needed, and following Option 4 in the OP, I see column width is set to 170. I cannot seem to change that to anything smaller. I can change it to, say, 85 and click OK, but when re-opened (even after reboot) it still says 170. Is there any way to make the width smaller than 170?

    PS: I have two monitors, one 4K (3840 x 2160) and one non-4K (1920 x 1080). On the non-4K monitor, the minimum width seems to be 170, and on the 4K monitor it seems to be 340, so there's some resolution-dependency, but on both of them I'd like to shrink the width to 50% (or perhaps even slightly less) its current size.
    You might need to rearrange the order to place the size last.

    My Explorer reads: A: File Name B: Date Modified C: Type D: Size

    This is the default order.

    Hello @Brink ,

    I was actually working on something else that was connected to this Tutorial, and as part of that process, I created a Context Menu for Size ALL Columns to Fit, which I thought might be a good addition for this Tutorial . . .

    Add Size ALL Columns to Fit - Context Menu:-

    Code:
    
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ; Title     : Add Size ALL Columns to Fit - Context Menu
    ; Created By: Paul Black
    ; Created On: 08-Nov-2021
    ; Filename  : Add_Size_All_Columns_To_Fit_Context_Menu.reg
    
    ; ====================================================================
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Windows.SizeAllColumnsToFit]
    "CommandStateSync"=""
    "Description"="@shell32.dll,-37467"
    "ExplorerCommandHandler"="{f4e8bc67-9616-4a28-a332-cf27a5ca6736}"
    "Icon"="imageres.dll,-5366"
    "MUIVerb"="@shell32.dll,-37466"
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Windows.SizeAllColumnsToFit]
    "CommandStateSync"=""
    "Description"="@shell32.dll,-37467"
    "ExplorerCommandHandler"="{f4e8bc67-9616-4a28-a332-cf27a5ca6736}"
    "Icon"="imageres.dll,-5366"
    "MUIVerb"="@shell32.dll,-37466"
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Windows.SizeAllColumnsToFit]
    "CommandStateSync"=""
    "Description"="@shell32.dll,-37467"
    "ExplorerCommandHandler"="{f4e8bc67-9616-4a28-a332-cf27a5ca6736}"
    "Icon"="imageres.dll,-5366"
    "MUIVerb"="@shell32.dll,-37466
    
    ; ====================================================================
    
    
    

    Remove Size ALL Columns to Fit - Context Menu:-

    Hello @Brink ,

    Just a quick question please.

    I wanted to add the Context Menu entry for the above to the Top of the right-click menu. I just used "Position"="Top" as I have done MANY times before without ANY problems, and it STOPS the process of being able to double-click a Folder and it opens. The Folder can still open with right-click Open. This is the error I get . . .

    The above is an example Folder I used, it happens on ALL Folders.

    It is NOT a big problem, but I am just curious if you know the reason why!

    Thanks.

    Hello @Paul Black,

    It could be since you are referencing a shell command as the context menu, but I'm not sure why specifying a "Position" would break it.

    Yes, that is the only thing that I can think of. It obviously has different rules applicable when using the shell Command.

    Thank you.
