    trying to install guest additions

    I installed Virtualbox 4.0 from their web site. I'm trying to also install Guest Additions (from their site as well). What I read says open the virtualbox, go to devices and proceed from there. I have no devices tab that I can find. I have File, Machine, Help. How do I install Guest Additions?
    Thanks

    Re: trying to install guest additions

    You install the guest additions from inside virtualbox, not by downloading it from the web site.

    It should be located at /usr/share/virtualbox

    To install it from the GUI, just select "Install guest additions" from the devices menu of a running VM.
