    Unhappy How can I change the screen size

    My laptop have a 13 inch display with FullHD resolution so everything is so small. How can I increase the size of all items on screen without changing the resolution? Thanks

    I have the same question. Found that screen but it only lists 1152x864 as the only option.

    I'm running the 2018.1 Hyper-V image if that makes a difference.

    I have tried editing /etc/default/grub to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:1280x720" but it doesn't work (but did in a previous install).

    Thanks

    Under settings ---> devices ---> display. There it should give you the option to change your resolution.

    Found the same issue on 2018.1. Remove "hyper-v_fb" from the line to make it: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=1280x720"

    Was able to change the res after this.

    These fixes didn't work for me at first as I had enabled the RemoteFX 3D Video Adapter in the Hyper-V settings for the VM. As another (since archived) thread noted, hyperv_fb was not running while the adapter was enabled, and neither "quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:1920x1080" or the variation with "hyperv_fb" omitted would work.

    Once I disabled the RemoteFX Adapter in the Hyper-V settings, I confirmed with lsmod that hyperv_fb was running, updated the grub file as described (using GRU
    B_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:1920x1080") and the VM rebooted straight into 1920x1080 resolution.
