Hi Abdullah,


You need to change the width of <li> tag using CSS.Hope this help you 

Re: home page layout

You can create the custom layout for home page. As if you modify the default 2 column right layout it will get affected on all pages where it is applied like my account, checkout etc.


You can create the custom layout using the 2column right layout & apply it only for home page with required changes. 


First create extension with only config file in it:  app/code/local/Namespace/AdditionalCmsPageLayouts/etc/config.xml


<?xml version="1.0"?>
     <label>Custom static page 1</label>

Then activate it: app/etc/modules/Namespace_AdditionalCmsPageLayouts.xml


<?xml version="1.0"?>


Clear cache, add your page/custom-static-page-1.phtml template file or copy 2column right file from default &rename it as above to your current theme and you’re done.


Once It is active you can see this new page in admin  > layout section to select under CMS pages.
