One of many ways to change settings in a desktop environment is to use tools that are provided with that environment. In this case XFCE is a desktop environment and it offers such tools, some with graphical interface. And the simplest way to change resolution is to use "Display" that can be found under Application Menu > Settings > Display or it can ...

You need to use external tool such as for example wmctrl. To list all running windows pass -l option to it. It is also possible to change title of specified application (short title with -I, long with -N or both with -T). Run man wmctrl for more info.
