Screen space

Laptops today have less "lines" then a couple of years ago. Typically 1600x1000 has become 1600x900. Visible vertical space is limited.

The VirtualBox menu bar (not Mini menu i seemless mode) in a VM colud be moved into the OS window main title bar as a popup (right click) menu, to give more screen space to the guest.

And/or the OS window title bar could be replaced with a mini bar like solution, displayed only when touched, freeing up even more vertical space.

The VirtualBox status bar could be hidden in many normal working situations. Incorporating the status bar/icons into the main menu may be a good solution. A View option to hide/show the status bar, is anaother way to handle this.
