In case the columns in the application you are working on do not obey their widths, then most likely there is a lot of space for them and the browser stretches them. Take a look at the article for columns width as there are differences for scrollable and non-scrollable grids.
In case you have questions for a particular scenario, you may get in touch via the support system or forums and we would be glad to take a look.

With the R3 2018 release we introduced the ability to call the Grid API to update the width of a particular column. From the feedback that we see in this thread, as well as feedback that we received in tickets the basic functionality needed is to be able to update the width of individual columns rather than the Grid as a whole.
To see this in action we added the functionality to our API demo (https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/api). This will also link to more in-depth API references.

looking forward for this feature as it will help with saved grid preferences and per user UI customization
