Screen Resolution After Installing Guest Additions

Postby wolfpackfan2009 » 28. Feb 2009, 00:23

Brand new VirtualBox user here. I have Windows XP running on a Mac Mini. It is running great except for one thing. I installed the guest additions and seem to have lost some screen resolution choices. Prior to the addition installation I had around 5 choices for screen resolution, now I only have two choices. Any idea how to gain back those other choices. Right now I'm running 1024x768, but would like the next higher choice. Thanks for any help.

Sorry, ignore question. I just read down a few posts and found my answer. Don't you just love newbies :oops:.

On another note - I have to say, why would anyone in their right mind purchase Parallels or VmWare when VirtualBox is available free. I tried both of the other products as trials and VirtualBox is much, much faster.
