Awesome. Thanks for the tips. Thanks for working this out with me and I hope this helps to guide others that come up with the same issue. I'll be sure to use lxappearance to make those changes.

Re: Openbox??

Yes. Confirmed. That works and all seems back to normal! Yo, thanks for the help and your time. I really appreciate it. Maybe that Openbox thing should be removed, discarded, whatever? Not sure how to do that, and it no longer appears as an option when I right click the desktop. But not trusting tha...

Thanks for the reply!

Re: Proper Crontab Syntax ?

I I think figured it out! I'm using just the crontab -e, but it's good to know there's a sudo as well. Thanks for that! But yes, it was a path issue. One in the crontab command which I corrected and made the initial post when that hadn't worked. I realized right after the directory the script was ou...

Re: Pi 4 4GB- Wifi not working when resolution is set too high

No, It simply doesn't want to connect. USB inserted or not. It simply is not working. The reason you see the USB is because I can't use the browser since it won't connect, so I had to copy and paste the terminal info into a txt file, remove it, then insert it into my Rpi3 so I can then post it here....
