What's the name of this programm [solved]
« on: October 15, 2019, 07:45:49 am »
In english it should be "Display", but it is different than "other" Display-Preferences;
cause it shows me the size of the monitor, and !!!!!!
it let me change the resolution

A click (right mouse button) gave me no info (Name) - just a link, to a help-file

I try to find it in the store/Software-pool... but nothing

Hi LordKaan, I'm assuming you want to change the resolution of your monitor, is that right? You should be able to do that in Peppermint Settings Panel under Hardware, or in Arandr.
What was I thinking?

This programm gave me the option, and also some other infos, which i also found inside the pool of PeppermintSetting Panel
What Arandr is doing - i don't get it yet.

Changing resolution is for me a other way, to "scale" (like it is in Windows poss) from 100% to "150%";
Cause "full HD" resolution is on some Laptops screens too much, and "Strg" plus "+" doesn t help always...

I don't use windows so this doesn't compute. Did you fix your problem?
