  • You need to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions into Ubuntu. This gives a few benefits, including resizing the Ubuntu screen to match the host window.

    Start the VM, then select from the VirtualBox menus:

    Devices ⇒ CD/DVD Devices ⇒ VBoxGuestAdditions.iso

    Then follow the instructions.
