Hyper-V – Wide Screen Resolutions?

#Topics: Hyper-V Screen Resolution,hyper-v widescreen resolution,hyper-v wide screen,Hyper-V Screen Size,hyper-v resolution 1920

I’ve created Windows 7 virtual machine on Windows 8 Hyper-V, but can find how to set resolution to anything widescreen (my monitor supports 1920×1200) to be able work fullscreen.

Is it possible to get any widescreen resolution on Hyper-V virtual machine?

There are two ways you can do this:

  1. Change the resolutions within the remote OS
  2. If connecting to a Windows OS, connect using Remote Desktop Connection instead of Hyper-V Viewer.

    Using RDP allows for more functionality including Client Screen Size, Audio, and Remote USB integration.
