There has to be search function for this forum.

I am sure this has been asked many times.

How do I change the screen size?

    If you're using mobile site, there's magnifying glass icon below "Questions" link. On desktop site, the search bar is right on the main page. Otherwise, use a search engine and include "askubuntu.com" into the query Aug 21, 2018 at 15:35

    is this actually a meta question? It looks like a main question with a misleading title...

  • @Zanna I think those are two questions, one for each. Answering the meta question seems like teaching OP and others how to fish.

Personally, I don't like the Stack Exchange search. I use google instead, with site:askubuntu.com to search here specifically, like change screen size site:askubuntu.com.

Though often there's helpful info on other sites like Super User, Unix & Linux, How-to Geek, Ubuntu Forums, etc, so I just put ubuntu in the query, like ubuntu change screen size.
