Windows – Change VMWare resolution from 4:3 to 8:5 for widescreen


I have a widescreen (1280×800) resolution. When I run XP in VMWare, it cannot take widescreen resolution. It is just displaying in aspect ratio 4:3. How to change it to 8:5 (laptop screen).

After you've installed the vmware tools you should be able to set the correct resolution inside the guest os. Just set the resolution as you would do in a normal Windows XP machine.
