This is probably going to be one of those things that everyone knows about apart from me.

I only found out about it from a comment on the Magic Mirror video (

You can set up a whole set of things for your Raspberry Pi all from the Raspberry Pi Imager application. No need to mess around with creating files on the SD Card, just hit “CTRL”+”Shift”+”X” and you get access to an “Advanced Options” screen.

From this screen you can:

Change the default hostname Enable SSH Set the password for the Pi user Configure WiFi

Really handy - not sure why it’s so well hidden! Now you can all tell me in the comments that I’ve been living under a rock and this is common knowledge!

You can pick up a RaspberryPI here:
