I can't figure out how to change my screen resolution.

Can someone help me?

    You could go to settings > settings-manager > display and change it there (xfce4-display-settings is the actual application used) or use xrandr -s 1280x1024 or whatever your desired resolution is.

open the settings manager menu, click on "display" and you can change it from there


Go into Settings Manager then Display and change it. If unable to then check the Alternitave drivers to see if the display adapter is installed.


For some reason my graphical display option was not working. I managed to change the resolution to 1920x1080 using this command:

xrandr -s 1280x1024

Go to the top left blue icon, search for "Display". Then, select a resolution from the dropdown and click on "Apply".
