System

Overscan

Use this option to enable or disable the black border around the screen image that can be used to correct an image that spills off the side of the display. Modern televisions and monitors do not need overscan enabled.

The default Overscan option is Enabled.

  1. Start on the Raspberry Pi Configuration System tab.
    Raspberry Pi Configuration: System

    Raspberry Pi Configuration: System

  2. At the Overscan option, select Enabled or Disabled.

Changes won’t be saved until you click OK to exit the Raspberry Pi Configuration tool, and also requires a reboot to take effect.


Enabling this option makes the following change to /boot/config.txt:

disable_overscan=0

There are additional overscan adjustment settings available in the /boot/config.txt file. Use positive values if console goes off screen, and negative values if there is too much border.

overscan_left=16
overscan_right=16
overscan_top=16
overscan_bottom=16

Disabling this option makes the following change to /boot/config.txt

disable_overscan=1
