virtual machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am using virtual machine on windows XP and it was working fine until it started doing this strange thing of not expanding to full screen whenever I do a alt+enter it just expnads to its set resolution (eg. if I set it to 1024*768 it stays there ) but does not expand to full screen I tried uninstalling and reinstalling VM on the host but no go. Please Help. I need to go to a full screen and not get stuck with blank edges on all sides .

    Warm regards

  • Hi,

     

    Did you use Windows Virtual PC?

     

    You can try to click “action” button on the top of tab, then click “View Full Screen” to show with full screen.

  • Hello, Thanks for your reply. And to answer your question, yes I am using Windows virtual machine and I did try the actions manu and view full screen mode but all I get is a screen with a cinemascope but on all four sides .....It does get bigger when I increase the resolution but does not fit to the entire screen. I can increase the resolution only to a maximum to what my LCD on my laptop can take beyond that it shows that VM is using a resolution which is too large for your display and goes back to the wndow mode. If i keep it to within the max screen resolution it does not fit to screen.
