I'm afraid your report makes little sense to me.

What version of Emacs is this? (The latest is 24.3.)
Are you running it in a text-terminal, or in graphical mode?

Either way, I don't understand.

In a text-terminal, Emacs uses whatever the terminal width is.
It is as far as I know impossible for it to somehow be "less wide" than
the terminal.

In graphical mode, you can make the width whatever you like by resizing
it in the usual way.
