    Prerequisites: Default install of Raspbian Stretch with Desktop.

    Step One: raspi-config.

    Use "ctrl+alt+t" to open a terminal window, then run "sudo raspi-config"

    If this is your first time booting raspbian probably best to select option "1 Change User Password" first.

    Then choose option "7 Advance Options" followed by "A7 GL Driver" and finally "G2 GL (Fake KMS)".

    I also recommend while you're in the settings app to activate ssh. "5 Interface Options" then "P2 SSH".
