    I have guess additions installed on the guest Windows XP, Ubuntu 9.04 is my host.
    I run in full screen CTRL + F
    Still I have only small screen in the middle and max resolution I can set up in XP is 800x600.

    see image attached.

    I had this issue too when already having guest additions installed, Ctrl + F would still show a small screen despite resolution adjustments. Going to Machine > Auto-Resize Guest Display, adjusted the window to perfectly match my monitor display (at 1920 x 1051 px).

    This sounds like the perfect setup for me! How can I do that?

    Re: [SOLVED] Virtualbox fullscreen

    Hi,

    This is my first time of using linux.... I'm having a similar problem of getting it to show in fullscreen. I tried out the suggestions (installing virtual box addition as instructed in this link http://www.robotification.com/compon...on-ubuntu.html) mentioned but couldn't get it right.

    Please can someone help me out (its my first time using linux) with this?

    Thanks
