How can I change boot menu options? [SOLVED]

Hi, everyone!
I’m trying to change the screen resolution of the boot menu, but in /etc/default/grub doesn’t appear nothing to do that. I’d like to change it to 1360x768. Do you, guys, know a way to do it?

Thanks in advance!

Change this line:


to this:


Having auto at the end means that if the 1360x768 resolution is not available, it will fall back to auto. See here:

EDIT - and, as metioned in the posts below, I should probably specify that you need to update GRUB after making the change:

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg


sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Look for this lines to edit:

# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'

And you want to change GRUB_GFXMODE=auto to GRUB_GFXMODE=1360x786,auto

Press Ctrl + X to exit, which will ask you to save the filet, press Y for yes to save and close the file you just edited. Then to be safe, regenerate grub:

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Give your system a restart and you should be good to go!

That is what my monitor resolution is set at so i set it the same. Lots of ways to do this.
Don’t forget to update grub after with the proper command.

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

I’m sure it doesn’t hurt, but the quotes aren’t required for this, at least according to the Arch wiki :stuck_out_tongue:

Does it really matter? I use them always have. It makes it more identifiable in the file. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
