changing desktop resolution

Post by xpro » Fri Sep 28, 2018 11:20 pm

Currently I am running Mint 18 Cinnamon, I tried Mint 19 XFCE, it's very quick and I like it. But I couldn't find how to change my screen resolution. Is it only possible to change the resolution by editing files? there is no GUI available in XFCE to change the screen resolution?

generally go to settings then display and you can change resolutions there

Screen resolution will also be dependent upon your graphics hardware and the driver it uses, so show us the output of
