RPi 3 7" touchscreen overscan with KI7MT distribution

I have recently installed the KI7MT distribution of WSJT-X on my RPi 3. I am using the RPi 7" touchscreen.

WSJT-X does not fit the screen (overscans)- so much so that it is unusable. I have spent several hours searching for answers on various sites and have tried changing the resolution which doesn't seem to change at all. I tried the changes in the GUI RPi configuration.

I have tried overscan settings in config.txt. The bottom setting seemed to have an effect as I changed it from 16 to 0 but any '-' change didn't seem to change it any further. '0' was not enough to move the display sufficiently.

Note that I am new to RPi so be patient. I also am barely literate with Linux although I have extensive software experience.

Please help.
