Since we managed to get my LightDM on Cinnamon DE in Debian Stretch working at boot again, I installed TeamViewer and am working with the desktop directly, this way is better in order not having to keep open SSH connection, which I doomed just because I need to start up Handbrake for a very long time, as such I deleted my previous question about flatpak issue, so what I need now is better resolution.

I tried running:

xrandr --fb 1920x1080

to no avail.

Currently, one monitor is connected to VGA with its native resolution of 1920x1080, but I would like to disconnect it, if possible, but first things first, so:

How do I add a FullHD resolution to my display over TeamViewer?

I only managed to find this solution, which sounds overly complex, is there, I hope, a simpler one?

I can only see these resolutions in the Display settings:
