    VirtualBox Ubuntu 20.04 LTS super buggy

    Hi, I downloaded the Ubuntu 20.04 .iso for VirtualBox because I'm on Windows 10 64bit (work laptop). I really love the look & feel of the new 20.04 Ubuntu, my only issue is the Guest Additions doesn't allow me to copy and paste between host and guest OS and drag 'N drop doesn't work either.

    Also, when I watch youtube videos or anything with audio, the audio stutters and video seems laggy. It really seems buggy as hell. Not sure if this is a virtual box issue, or something with my Ubuntu installation. Can anyone provide any insight?

    This is my first-time using Linux (Ubuntu) as my main OS (albeit a VM) but despite the buggy-crap, I would really love it to be my daily driver...

    Have you added your user in the guest Ubuntu-20.04 system to the vboxsf group?
    That is a requirement for shared folders to work in a Linux guest.

    I am now using VBox-6.1.8 with several Linux distro guests and can share files and drag/drop with no difficulty.

    Yes, I just did. But Copy&Paste never even worked, so the shared folder/drag&drop I don't think is my issue (both aren't working).

    I'll try installing guest additions again but something tells me it won't make a difference.

    Would it matter that I'm on a work computer that is managed by my company (Windows 10 64bit) and has an encrypted harddrive? I'm a software engineer tho, so its a pretty good spec'd out laptop and I believe I have admin access on mostly everything. I don't see why something would be disabling me copy& paste ability on a VM as an Software Engineer.....
