I'm using Ubuntu on Oracle's Virtual Box aside from Windows because the vast of my friends are trying to get me to try it, I open it and activate full screen mode, yet it isn't all fullscreen. I enabled 2D acceleration and in 'Displays' Ubuntu says I'm using a Laptop, when actually I'm using a desktop. Is this just a bug, or is there some way I can fix it myself?
