Scroll down a bit, you don't need to connect directly via that prompt..

Thank you for your help.....

I suppose that I should have said that I am trying to install it as a stand alone operating syatem.

Does that make a difference in what I should do?

No. Volumio IS an operating system by itself. There is no other way to install it.

It is designed to run headless though, and its functions can be controlled via the webUI or app. Scroll down a bit in the Quick Start Guide to read how to connect to it.

Ok, I have read all the way down now.....

Only there is a step that I can't do.

It says to connect ethernet cable.

There is no place to plug ethernet cable on Pi3 A+....

Sorry if I am missing something. As I said, I am completely new to this Pi.

No problem.
When it starts, Volumio creates its own wireless network called Volumio. Connect to it (pw: volumio2).
You will see the user interface appear.

Then see:

EXCELLENT!! Thanks to all of your help, I am now able to run Volumio through my PC and also my phone.

For this help, I thank you again!

However, now I am wanting to be able to access the desktop on the Pi alone.

So that the Pi acts independently.

How do I get it to boot directly to the desktop using only the Pi??

I think that I am not clear what I want. Sorry, my English is so broken.

I want the Pi to behave like this Sony HAP-S1 player.

All self contained and not requiring web browser on phone, tablet, or PC.

If it cannot be self contained then I must find something other than Volumio.

Thanks for any help you can give.

You would need to purchase a touchscreen display and use the 'touchscreen plugin.'
