This is on an old thread, but thank you @Mykle1 .
I used ‘F11’ all of the time to immediately go to a smaller window.
Install MagicMirror on a PC Windows 7/10 - Complete walkthrough
Thank you so much for this post! I’m new to the Pi and MagicMirror. Working on the PI remotely was a bit of pain and this allowed me to run MagicMirror on my main machine with VMWare Workstation.
First off let me say these instructions were ‘spot-on’ and I was up and running immediately.
As I added modules, I noticed some of them were not working, a.k.a. not loading any data. They would activate, say “loading…” and nothing else.
I researched a few of the modules I was using and found one step that needs to be on your list:
‘npm install request’
After that, the modules in question began updating with data.
Thank you again for giving me a better dev environment to work in!
