Win 95 -- full screen

I got Windows 95 running. But it is not full screen. It is, perhaps, one fifth screen.

Has anyone gotten Windows 95 (or 98) to appear full screen? How?

Thank you.

Real Full-screen would require Guest Additions, but Guest Additions aren't available for Windows 98/98/ME. The best you could do is try to set the resolution on your guest up to as big a window as possible that will still fit in your host screen.

You may need to change the display driver in the guest to do so. See this tutorial for display driver ideas: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=9918

I reviewed the "Tutorial: Windows 95/98 guest OSes" posting that you provided (thank you).
One of the steps is to use:
SciTech Display Doctor

I ran that .iso file, to no avail. I clicked my way all over the place. I could not figure out how to get it to update my drivers for higher resolution.

Thanks anyway.

There was another one, that is supposed to be at least less troublesome to use.

However, as far as I know, things needed to be configured manually a lot more with 95 than, say, XP. We have all got soft... Best read those instructions more carefully.
