virtual box how the heck can i work with 2 monitors

I have a windows 7 running in virtual box , how can I use dual screen ?

I cannot figure this out , how exactly do you do this?

You are using vmware, you have to install the vmware tools then there is a multi-monitor button similar to the full screen option. Once you hit that, your VM will span both monitors.
It looks like two monitors one next to the other.

If you are actually using virtualbox as the VM host, download the extra packages and install it inthe VM.
Then you should see both monitors from the host.
In the VM's Settings, under "Display", "Video" tab, you have "monitor count". Here you can select the number of displays you want the VM to use. After that when you start the VM, the default setting will be the displays in cloned mode. So you will have to use your VM's OS's settings to change this to extend.
