Microsoft Virtual Machine Screen Stuck

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.

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?
