vmware server screen resolution..

I have installed the VMware Workstation on my local computer  and cretated VMware server which is running on windows 2012 server inside it so then when I look at the virtual settings of this virtual machine,display adapter seems to be AutoDetect and marked " use host settings for monitors" so the display of  my physical notebook is Nvidia but the display of VMware server seems to be Generic PNP monitor and adapter type is VMware SVGA so my problem is that screen resolution is 1637x879 but my physical notebook is 1920x1080 so how can I adjust the screen resolution such as my notebook resolution? in this case, screen resolutiton is bad and I am not able to use screen of VMware server completely

Did you install VMware Tools on the Guest machine?

Try a fixed resolution of 1366x768 in the Server guest. That should give you a full sized guest of reasonable size operating in a window of your host machine.

I use the Fit command in VMware to make my guests a fixed size which show me the entire guest without scrolling.

After the tools are installed as mentioned above, just pull an edge of the VM window with your mouse. The resolution should then automatically adjust to the size you have pulled. Besides that, if you  enter Full-Screen mode it should also adjust to your screen's resolution.

1366x768 is a good widescreen resolution. However, make your VMware Windows a bit larger and then View, Fit Guest and see how that works.

Or as I mentioned, just pull out the window or use fullscreen.

Also, look at your host Video Driver and upgrade it.

I have a tiny 11 inch ThinkPad with 1366x768 native maximum resolution.

Windows 7 and ALL below run fine in a VMware Window with no scrolling. Windows 10 has a minimum resolution of 1024x768 and I must scroll it, but appearance is fine.

Server 2012 via RDP works fine and appearance is great but I must scroll it as well.

All my scrolling is due to tiny machine with tiny screen.

1. You may wish to update your host video driver.
2. What version of VMware are you using?
