Hi. locate the Control Centre, go to Peripherals then select Display. You should be able to click on the small arrow to the right of "Screen Size" and change your settings there. If the desired resolution isn't found, you must restart the installation and at the startup screen, press F2 or F3 in order to change the resolution and complete the update without having to go through a complete re-installation.
Good luck.
Kind regards,

Vive Linux!
