Since my Excel typically have (1) long text that takes multiple wraps to display in a single cell, and (2) multiple line text created using Alt-Enter and also wrap, the way I use to resize row width takes several steps. (1) change the column to text mode (2) turn off wrap on the entire column (3) turn wrap back on (4) double click the small line between two row numbers on the left, e.g. between the "2" and the "3" Excel row numbers.

Maybe a faster solution is to double click the small space between the column headers "A" and "B" to auto fit the column width. Same works for the column height.
