Desktop with one window in the top left

After starting one time my Raspberry Pi 4 without the HDMI cable plugged in, I had the resolution 1024x768.

I set the right resolution to 1920x1080. It looks good, but now looks like I have a square for one resolution and the rest.

For example, if I put VLC on fullscreen, it only gets as big as you see in the picture.

The bar menu does not expand to fit the whole screen.

I tried changing the resolution, the HDMI port, rebooting, change resolution, reboot. It does not work.

I also tried updating the system & reboot. Still the same.

VLC and the menu bar cover the entire screen only at 1024x768 resolution.

  • it's not desktop inside a desktop ... it is app not going to fullscreen ... research that at linux websites
