When clicking on "Apply", the virtual device will ask for reboot. This can take several seconds.

# From command line

Android geometry (size and density) can be changed with the following properties. You must be in the virtual device shell with SSH or PuTTy (see this section) to run the following commands.

setprop persist.graph_mode WidthxHeight-Depth (e.g. 720x1280-32)
setprop persist.dpi dpi (e.g. 240)


Only resolutions available in the configuration section (see previous section) are guaranteed to work, others may cause image corruptions.
