Also, now are you able to control the width of the Mini Cart. While editing the Mini Cart template part, choose the Mini Cart Contents and change the dimensions in
px. The new width will be visible in the front end. The minimum width is set to 300px and by default, it has 480px width. Also, don’t worry about the mobile, the maximum width would be the viewport width (Mini Cart won’t get wider than the device screen).
