VirtualBox Resolution Problem

Hello friends,

I had Windows 7 running very nicely in VirtualBox.  However, yesterday, I set it to full screen mode.  After I was done with full screen mode, I exited out of it and shutdown the VM.  I started it up this morning, and I no longer have the option to go full screen, and my Windows VM resolution is not maxed out at 1024x768, much lower than it was before.  Also, when I look at the window of the VM, I no longer have the VirtualBox menus.  I'm attaching a screenshot of my VM window here so you can see that I no longer have the VirtualBox menus above and below the screen.

Thanks in advance for your advice.  Have a good day.
