You don't say which version of powerstore you are using, but it looks like version 3, (it makes a BIG difference).

If so, try opening up admin/Products_Update.php

Around like 1009 you finf the code for the ProductCategoryID select box.
The width can be edited here directly.

Suggest you play with the width settings a little so it doesn't make everything else look wrong

A very helpful tool for finding CSS is Fire Bug in Fire Fox.

it allows you to select elements on the page, and the CSS That effects the selected element, you can also experiment with making CSS Changes directly in the browser to see what works before editing the CSS File.
