I've installed Raspbian onto my RPi's SD card from the Raspberry Pi downloads.

The first time I booted up the RPi, connected to a monitor, I got a list of options, with something like a <select> and <return> link at the bottom.

I'm trying to get back to this page in case there will config options here for setting up network settings.

However now when I load the RPi, it just goes to a command line screen with $.

How can I get back to that initial screen?

You can get initial config menu by running sudo raspi-config. Many settings changes will require a reboot.

  • as in the command $ raspi-config?

    Try sudo raspi-config in a terminal or via ssh.
