When you install and configure the raspberry pi desktop for the pi-4 you can select a box if you have black border on your screen. I selected this box but when I restarted the edges of the toolbar and edges of the desktop are outside the visible area. Please does anyone know a simple solution to this problem which doesn’t involve rewriting your sad card and starting again? Looking forward to your help. Thanks Seth
Put the SD card in your laptop or desktop and make an empty file called ssh in the /boot partition. It will enable SSH for your pi.
Put the card back into the pi and start it up. You can now in a terminal window on a computer (on the same network) establish an SSH session to your pi. You can find the IP address of the pi from your LAN router, and then type in the terminal window to log in to your pi: ssh pi@< IP address > Then type: sudo raspi-config
The overscan option should be in one of its menus.
I don't know how to be specific for MS Windows unfortunately. Adepts speak of Putty in connection with ssh, but to me that's the stuff my father used to secure window panes in the frame. He never knew about MS. I never used either putty.
