#16910 closed defect (fixed)

monitor detach causes running vm to abort

Reported by: Simon Coleman Owned by:
Component: GUI/multiview Version: VirtualBox 5.1.22
Keywords: multi monitor Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: other


Resubmission of #16240 as it applies to 5.1.22 as well. External monitors of differing resolutions to the inbuilt display. Detach of those monitors causes a fullscreen *running* vm to abort.


  • Using the view menu
  • pausing the vm
  • setting the external monitor to the same resolution as the inbuilt display

All allow the monitor to be detached & the vm to be moved work around the problem.
