Screw all pivot balls equally to the outside.

also make sure to recheck your camber and toe (f&r) afterwards. As you decrease / increase track width you should readjust the steering rods to maintain your front toe.

Watch Michael Salvens videos, they are helpful;

I watched all the 5 videos but he doesn't seems to be covering the topic on track width.

The screws with which you set the camber are also used to set the track width, you only need to screw out both lower and upper screws.
