    Sorry the first method didn't work for you Shon.

    Now for this method:
    If you need 1600x1200 fullscreen in VBox you also need 1600x1200 on your host.

    (If your host is 1152x864 then Vbox resolution needs to be the same size also).

    Maybe try to look for the recommended resolution on your monitor and use that one.

    That's all there is to it.

    Good luck

    That is what I've been trying to say Hopachi. He needs to change his W8 resolution to match his native screen resolution. Perhaps I'm not explaining it clearly.

    It's clear for me.
    But it seems he needs 1600x1200 on his host to get what he needs.

    Thanks

    I wonder whether his problem is selecting his desired resolution while in scale mode which of course is problematic. I think ideally he should do it in full screen, but that may be difficult given only part of the desktop is visible. Maybe if he does it in Windowed mode with scrollbars it might stick when he goes full screen.

    I'm using a laptop as my machine for the host. My Current max resolution level is 1152x864. i wish to get to a level of 1600x1200. Is it possible to get that resolution in my host machine? If Yes, may i know the method?

    Thank You
