    Install the "guest additions" pack that comes with Virtual Box.

    If you havent got it , download it (using the link off the menus in Virtual Box) then mount the addon as a CDROM image

    I just typed a few words like, believe it or not, "ubuntu virtual box" into google and low and behold...
