The Display tab lets you adjust the manner in which the console and the host display accommodate a different guest operating system display resolution.

Autofit

Use Autofit preferences to control how the console window behaves when Autofit is active.

  • Select Autofit window to have Workstation change the console window size to match the guest operating system screen resolution. This is the same as choosing View > Autofit Window.
  • Select Autofit guest to have Workstation change the guest operating system display resolution to match the console window size. This is the same as choosing View > Autofit Guest.
  • Note: Selecting Autofit guest also activates Autofit window.

    Full Screen

    Use Full Screen preferences to configure how the host and guest display settings interact when you enter full screen mode on the host.

  • Select Resize host to change the host display settings to match the display settings of the guest while the guest is in full screen mode.
  • Select Resize guest to change the guest's display settings to match the host display settings while the guest is in full screen mode.
  • Select Don't resize to have both host and guest retain their own display settings while the guest is in full screen mode.
