    You can hit a button when launching a game and make changes to the emulator there including size. Also

    /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg can be edited to whatever size you choose.

    # video_fullscreen_x =
    # video_fullscreen_y =

    Remove the # so that the the lines are not ignored and make the resolution size whatever you want. Example: 1080 would be

    video_fullscreen_x = 1920
    video_fullscreen_y = 1080

    Also there is an aspect ratio you can adjust, and again need to remove the # when you adjust it.

    # video_aspect_ratio =

    I use
    video_aspect_ratio = 1.77
    for 16:9 screen and I think it looks nice. The options are:

    video_aspect_ratio =
    #1.333333 (4:3) Traditional SDTV
    #1.56 (14:9) 4:3/16:9 Compromise aspect ratio
    #1.6667 (5:3 Super 16mm)
    #1.77 (16:9) HDTV US standard
    #1.78 (16:9) HDTV US standard alternate
    #1.6 (16:10) Common computer screen ratio
    #1.6667 (5:3) Common European widescreen standard
    #1.85 Common US widescreen cinema
    #2.39 Current widescreen cinema alternate
    #2.40 Current widescreen cinema alternate
