I've successfully installed this 3.5" LCD display, which uses this LCD driver: https://github.com/goodtft/LCD-show.

My problem is, that when I use VNC to remotely access the PI, (I assume) because of the LCD driver the resolution is too small and I can only see part of the windows and can't change resolution. Why can't I change the resolution? Any idea how to solve the problem? Can I somehow delete the driver or revert to the original display configuration? Unfortunately I only have remote access to the PI right know. (BTW I'm using RealVNC and PI 3B+)

Thanks for the help in advance!

Read the last part of the Step 3 from RAEDME.md file of the GitHub repo you are referring to.

If you need to switch back to the traditional HDMI display

sudo ./LCD-hdmi

Login into your pi using ssh and cd to the location where you downloaded the driver and executed ./LCDxx-show previously and run the command sudo ./LCD-hdmi
