I am displaying Raspberry Pi OS on a 3.5" display. The windows do not fit in the screen.

Is there a way I can shrink the entire image on-screen so that everything is smaller but fits on-screen? The smallest display resolution offered by the Raspberry Pi configurations menu is 640x480 I believe. Can I custom edit a configuration file, or install software the allows for a different resolution ?

Or, is there a way to get a moving window on-screen to look around at the full contents of the desktop?

Try using xrandr to setup a virtual desktop with panning.
