    I have set the screen/display size to 800 x 600 which is great for my tired old eyes but now when i try to reset the date/time i cannot get at the "Apply" button to confirm the new settings. Could i change the screen/display size and the date/time from the command line and if so how? Thanks

    To set the date and time via the command line:

    Code:
    man date
    To change screen sizes use the + and - keys on your keypad.
