I am trying to get onto my virtual machine and it seems I can only view part of the main screen to login and I can click or view anything when I put it into full screen mode. I also cannot move the edges of the screen to open it up and to login. Am I missing a shortcut here? I dont want to have to restart.

On the main server where the vm is hosted? Its always worked? Weird.
You may have a smaller screen resolution enabled on the machine you are currently working on.

Do I change the resolution on the main host server? It wont allow me to click anywhere on the VM my jouse disapears then I have to ctrl+alt+left arrow.
It's really your preference. You can change the resolution on the VM if you do not mind if squashed together. I think it's better changing the resolution on the client.

At this point I have to RDP to the VM, and I dont want to have to do that or restart if I dont have to.
Did you install the integration services on the VM?

I dont see anything in services of the VM, is there another place I can check?
Action menu -> Insert Integration Services Setup Disk
None of the above fixed my issues, we had to manually restart the VM and host server which fixed the issues. Had nothing to do with resolution. Thanks.
