VMWare Workstation: BT4 does not fill the screen
How can I get BT4 to fill the screen in Workstation 7? I don't mean 'full screen'. The BT4 OS window is only using about 30% of the screen space when Workstation is maximised.
I have installed BT4 PreFinal and VMWare Tools using Workstation, by following the guide on this forum.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Found it: in Workstation: View>Autofit Guest. Please delete this thread is possible....sorry!
Just burned his ISO
you need to install vmware tools.
1. Choose VM > Install VMware Tools.
The guest operating system mounts the VMware Tools installation virtual CD.
2. Double-click the VMware Tools CD icon on the desktop.
Note: In some Linux distributions, the VMware Tools CD icon may fail to appear when you install VMware Tools within an X windows session on a guest. In this case, you should continue installing VMware Tools as described in Installing VMware Tools from the Command Line with the Tar Installer, beginning with step
3. Double-click the RPM installer in the root of the CD-ROM.
4. Enter the root password.
5. Click Continue.
The installer prepares the packages.
6. Click Continue when the installer presents a dialog box saying Completed System Preparation.
A dialog appears for Updating system, with a progress bar. When the installer is done, VMware Tools are installed. There is no confirmation or finish button.
7. In an X terminal, as root (su -), configure VMware Tools.
Respond to the questions the installer displays on the screen. Press Enter to accept the default value.
Note: Be sure to respond yes when the installer offers to run the configuration program.
8. Launch the VMware Tools background application:
