How do I increase the cell width of the Jupyter/ipython notebook in my browser?


If you don't want to change your default settings, and you only want to change the width of the current notebook you're working on, you can enter the following into a cell:

from IPython.core.display import display, HTMLdisplay(HTML("<style>.container { width:100% !important; }</style>"))


That div.cell solution didn't actually work on my IPython, however luckily someone suggested a working solution for new IPythons:

Create a file ~/.ipython/profile_default/static/custom/custom.css (iPython) or ~/.jupyter/custom/custom.css (Jupyter) with content

.container { width:100% !important; }

Then restart iPython/Jupyter notebooks. Note that this will affect all notebooks.


To get this to work with jupyter (version 4.0.6) I created ~/.jupyter/custom/custom.css containing:

/* Make the notebook cells take almost all available width */.container {    width: 99% !important;}   /* Prevent the edit cell highlight box from getting clipped; * important so that it also works when cell is in edit mode*/div.cell.selected {    border-left-width: 1px !important;}
