    Default "FIXEDMODE" resolution on RaspberryPi4?

    Hey y'all

    I'm working on a miniature laptop project and finally got the keyboard and mouse in that I will be using. But I've run into a small hiccup. The screen icons and text are TINY!

    I tried to change the resolution in screen preferences, but there's only one option, and it's already selected: "FIXEDMODE"

    I'm using this 5.5" AMOLED screen: https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/5.5inch_HDMI_AMOLED



    Anyone ever run into this before, or have any solutions?


    I appreciate any advice =)

    Your window manager should have appearance settings for font, font size, icon size, etc.

    The specific place to look for those settings will depend on which window manager/desktop environment you are using.
