Size of Window

Postby SAHAAY » 14. Mar 2012, 13:44

Hi,

I have install Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.7 in oracle virtual box 5.4... but the size of window in which OEL runs is small and it is not covering the entire area of virtual toolbox.... of my Laptop

How can i increase the size of window to full size...

Thanks and Regards...

Install the guest additions, inside the guest. Then you can either drag the window to a better custom size or, better IMHO, uses whatever tool Oracle Enterprise Linux provides for changing display "resolution" to a better standard size.

The problem with custom display sizes is that many applications will store different layout profiles (location and sizes of gadget windows etc) for different display resolutions, so every time you slightly tweak the window size you are selecting a new layout profile. Better IMHO to choose a standard size and stick with it.

See chapter 4 of the user manual.

IMHO is an acronym, short for "In My Humble Opinion". I resisted using another acronym on you - RTFM (look it up). :)
