Change Screen Resolution #37848
I am successfully running astroberry on my RPi3b.
When I access it from my laptop the Display in Monitor Preferences is set to unknown and the screen resolution is set to 1920 x 1080.
Is it possible to change this so it will fit on my windows laptop which has a max resolution of 1366 x 768 without the need for scroll bars?

Yes it is, but cant remember offhand, it’s in one of the configuration files you have to edits one of the lines, all the available resolutions have a number next to them, and you put the number in that corresponds to the resolution you want...

If I recall correctly the file to edit is /boot/config.txt

Change the /boot/config.txt file to set the HDMI mode.
The config file includes a list of HDMI Group 1 and Group 2 display settings, you can also find CEA/DMT tables online. It is also possible to create custom settings that are non-standard.
Myself I use these lines:
hdmi_mode 83
83 corresponds to 1600x900.
For your case, Group 2, mode 39 is 1360x786 60Hz

You can reconfigure as already discussed OR use Local Scaling option available in Settings menu in the sliding panel.
This option is available only when Astroberry is accessed with a web browser. It will rescale 1920x1080 to your screen resolution, whatever it is.
