    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to have Finder automatically extend the width of each column when in Column view?

    Thanks

    Hold down the option key while dragging any column to a new width.

    This also sets the default column width.

    You can also double-click the 'stretch thumb' at the bottom of a column to make it auto-resize the width of that column.

    But, by the sounds of it you want the Finder to automagically show each column at the right width. I'm not aware of any way to make the Finder do that, which is a pity.
