How do I adjust the column width of the content drilldown report in GA?

HI Aimia I,

In the UI, column width is not an option.  The only way to adjust is either to shrink the browser window to collapse the column widths (only to a certain point.), hide the left hand report navigation,

or you could create a custom report that eliminated some metrics if you need more space.


Lastly you could select a different view such as compare or performance that enlarges the page path area.

If, when you drill down, your page URI's are too long; you may have a lot of parameters that you could eliminate from an analysis view (I would discourage you from doing this in your "unfiltered or all website data" views) by adjusting the view settings.

Hope that helps.

I was still researching on this issue. Sharing some link which might of some use. All the best.


You can control bar width and spacing using the chbh parameter. If you do not specify chbh, some bars might be cropped.
