You will want to play with the overscan in the CONFIG/TXT (or CONFIG.TXT on non RISC OS Systems).hilbertdad wrote:This is also my situation. Black borders around the riscos desktop

With Linux image everything is fine and the X desktop is covering the full area
I have tried to force the HDMI mode in config.tx file :hdmi_group = 1 (CEA) , hdmi_mode = 16 (1080P 60hz.)

If it's the desktop font you're referring to then you can set its size using the Wimp$FontSize system variable. To see it working, press F12 and type 'Set Wimp$FontSize nnn' (without quotes) where nnn is the required size in 1/16th of a point. So, for 14 points you'd use nnn=224. When done press Enter twice to return to the desktop, and you should see a bigger desktop font.hilbertdad wrote:To have a 'larger' fonts
