Try setting File|Preferences|Display|MaxGuestScreenSize to "None". The change the guest display size to any widescreen ratio - you must change the size for Windows to register the hardware change, you can change it back to the exact size you want later.

If you are planning on installing Windows 10 as a guest. Installing the guest additions will take care of the resolution.
