I accidentally set my screen resolution to 800x600 in a 720p laptop screen, and when I tried to revert it, I can't reach the buttons because my laptop screen was too small. The answers that I tried were for Loki. Is there a version of this for Hera?

You can use xrandr cli-tool for that.

  1. Open Terminal by ⌘ + T
  2. Type xrandr to see available screen modes
elementary@elementary:~$ xrandr
