Preserve column width with bootstrap3 responsive table

I have a table with 7 columns (td). I set it to a fixed width and it works fine with the desktop browser. However, when I resize my browser to simulate a mobile phone, or even access this page using a mobile device, it will not respect the column width.

I won't put all the html, but basically:

<div class="table-responsive">
              <td class="w-large">Column 1</td>
              <td class="w-medium">Column 2</td>
              <td class="w-medium">Column 3</td>
              <td class="w-medium">Column 4</td>
              <td class="w-medium">Column 5</td>
              <td class="w-medium">Column 6</td>
              <td class="w-medium">Column 7</td>



.w-large {
    width: 198px;

.w-medium {
    width: 176px;


Is there a way to keep the column width on mobile? Does bootstrap have a custom class to make it look like a tip?

.table-responsive should be like yours on a wrapper around the table. The widths will not be preserved because the class puts white-space: nowrap;

on th, td, etc. Do this instead:

@media screen and (max-width: 767px) {
  .alt-table-responsive {
    width: 100%;
    margin-bottom: 15px;
    overflow-y: hidden;
    overflow-x: auto;
    -ms-overflow-style: -ms-autohiding-scrollbar;
    border: 1px solid #dddddd;
    -webkit-overflow-scrolling: touch;



<div class="alt-table-responsive">
