This issue can easily be fixed by setting the appropriate width of the webpart(s). The general steps are as follows;

2) From Edit option, for the affected Webpart, select Modify Share Web Part.


3) From within the Web Part Task Pane update and fix the width that is most appropriate for all users i.e. based on screen resolution.


4) At the bottom of the Web Part Task Pane,click Apply


5) The webpart will now have been resized. Try another width dimension as required and apply.
