Best Answer

There is no single answer to which is the widest letter, as it depends what you font you are using, but in many fonts, it is usually either capital M or capital W.

In the font Arial, W is the widest letter, with the widest lowercase letter being m. Monospaced fonts (eg. Courier) will have all letters the same width.

Historically, M was considered to be the widest letter, and the "em" unit in typography originated from this.

It could also depend on if you mean handwritten, as then it could depend on the person's handwriting.
