Howto run Linux with resolution other than 1080p
Issue: System menus appear off viewable screen
Hardware\Software : Pine64, A64-DB-Rev B (1 GB), Ubuntu, 16.04, xenial "Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS" - Longsleep Distro w\Mate - 32 GB MicroSD, HP w2216h LCD Monitor using HDMI cable capable of various resolutions at 10+ years old

Have tried standard 1080p, and five or six resolutions from low to high using the uEnv.txt settings, e.g: optargs=disp.screen0_output_mode=1680x1050p60 but all result in menus off the viewable monitor. There is no hardware setting to shrink the horizontal and vertical of the image to fit using HDMI. Lowering or increasing the resolution has no impact; one setting duplicated the viewable monitor and menu and rendered it unusable. SSH login allowed me to edit the uEnv.txt to change the resolution!

Is there a method to move the menus position using X window settings or configurations such that the position will be lower and\or further into the horizontal \ vertical image area?

Thanks for any direction or ideas.
