Running Hyper-V on my laptop, connected to a 23" monitor.
My problem is that Hyper-V display is rectangular (wide) & I need it to be closer to square, as the software I run on it is more suited to a square display.
How can I get there from here?

The graphics driver is provided by the Host Machine and it is a wide screen setup.

All you can do is set the display for portrait settings but that will leave a black area on the screen as the screen will not be filled.

The other and more obvious thing to do is run the application in a window (NOT Full Screen) and size the window to the software needs.  That will most certainly work.
