Resolution Setting via VNC?

Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:56 pm

Hopefully, this is advanced enough to qualify for this post even though I'm very much a noob to the world of pi.

I have a pi3 running in my basement without a monitor plugged in. When I plug a monitor in it has an acceptable resolution, but I won't be using it with a monitor. After reboots, it is running at a VERY low resolution (x414 vertical, I think). At this resolution, it isn't even enough to see the full configuration window content.

I'm having trouble figuring out how to get it to boot up to at least x1024. I would prefer x1200.

Is there a command I can run at boot up that will change the screen resolution to x1200?

Use the [Set Resolution] button in [Menu] --> [Preferences] --> [Raspberry Pi Configuration]
Find resolution in the [Advanced] menu in:

Code: Select all

sudo raspi-config
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
