[SOLVED]When I go to the console the resolution is way larger then my laptop monitor


Jun 30, 2022
I have three VMs. Two with Linux OS's and the other with Home Assistant. In all three VMs when I open the console from the selection on the left the small display opens like it should however when I open the console at the top to get a full screen it appears much larger than my laptop monitor. This appears to have happened since I installed a container from a helper script and then removed it as it wasn't what I wanted. I'm not sure where I should look to adjust this.

Many thanks, any help appreciated.

Well, I guess that's a, "never mind". There was just an update about a firewall and it seemed to fix my problem. Not sure how but I guess I'm good now.
