Increase the cell width of notebook using custom css

Alternative way to increase the cell width is to create/ edit css file as explained below.

Go the following location

C:\Users\<profile_account>\.jupyter\custom

If you find custom.css in that location then edit to add the following content or create a file called custom.css with the content below.

custom.css

.container { width:100% !important; }

Note, this file contains any manual css for the notebook interface page that needs to override the global styles. This is only required when different pages style the same element differently. This is just a hack to deal with your current CSS style. And no new styling should be added to this file.

Finally, reload the page of jupyter notebook interface. Note, this will affect all the notebooks.

That’s it. Hope it helped 🙂
