Since 6.1 I switched from VboxSVGA to VMSVGA.
My guest display, as the host, was set to 1920x1080.
After the switch I've lost the ability to use that resolution but I've found these commands as workaround:
VBoxManage.exe setextradata <VMName> CustomVideoMode1 1920x1080x32
VBoxManage controlvm <VMName> setvideomodehint 1920 1080 32
After upgrading to 6.1.4 the resolution was still available, but after installing the guest addition at the same version and rebooting it disappeared from the available resolutions.
I tried using the same commands as above but with no success.
Only after downgrading to 6.1.2, reinstalling guest additions 6.1.2 and rebooting my desktop loaded at 1920x1080 and the resolution was available again.
