How can I change the screen resolution in a VMware Virtual Machine running Ubuntu to be able to view it in full-screen?
It will work best, if you install the VMWare Tools. There is a kb article for you: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1022525
This will enable some features like shared clipboard.
To view Ubuntu in fullscreen inside VMware, follow these steps after enabling 3D acceleration in VMware:
Install VMware tools in Ubuntu to enable dynamic screen re-sizing
Change the display option to "Automatic/host screen"
Ctrl+Alt+Enterto enable/disable full-screen mode.
In the newer vmware versions goto
view-> autosize-> autofit guest and in older versions
go to view and press "Switch to scale mode" which will adjust the virtual screen when you adjust the application.
Hope it will solve your problem.
Just Install VMware Tool using
sudo apt install open-vm-tools this will enable you clipboard copy paste, full screen and lots of features.
- install vmware tools:
sudo ./vmware-install.pl -d
Resolutionselect it, and move dialog box to right: click
Go to Settings->Display->Choose a 16:9 aspect ratio. Done. You can choose the optimal resolution as well to get best out of your monitor/screen.
After "ctrl + alt + enter", just 3 steps. 1 step, find&click "View" menu on menu bar. 2 step, find&click "Autosize" menu 3 setp, find&click "Stretch guest" menu.
so u will see full screen.
