Virtual box Display resolution

Postby Sandy1984 » 11. Aug 2019, 13:36

Hi,

I have installed virtualbox in a windows10 OS with Guest OS as Windows7 to support my software. The monitor is 75'' LED TV from the host OS ie Windows10 it is automatically adjusted the resolution as 3000x2000 but in virtualbox maximum resolution is 1920x1280 and the display is little blured due to this, is there any solution for this to make the display more accurate??

Regards
Sandy

If you have Guest Additions installed in the guest you should be able to set the guest to full-screen, and the resolution should match the host screen.

That said, 3k x 2k is a huge screen for the circa-1995 virtual video card that is presented to the guest. Max out your guest's video memory slider. Enable 3D acceleration to get 256MB max video memory.
