8.8" 1920x480 letterbox LCD HSD088IPW1 with Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi 1920x480 LCD

The HSD088IPW1 with Wisecoco HDMI driver board from Aliexpress.com work seemlessly with a PC but refused to play nicely with my Raspberry Pi until making these changes, tested with Raspbian (March2021) on a Pi Zero W.

These lines modified in /boot/config.txt file

# These lines for 1920x480 display

How do I make the resolution smaller? I have the 480x1920 display. But the hole it is going in is smaller.
