Make application window suitable for 1280x800 resolutions

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Many current laptops/monitors come with an unsuitable 1280x800 resolution which makes it difficult to use guest resolutions larger than 800x600 without having the window stretch beyond the host display.


  • Allow to disable the menu
  • Put the statusbar/toolbar to either the left or right window border (maybe make it optional)
  • Make menu available via statusbar/toolbar

This does not give enough room for the titlebar and a likely systray/Gnome- or KDE panel but would still help a lot.

Version 1.4.0 will contain a configuration option. Use

  VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/Customizations noMenuBar,noStatusBar

to disable both the menu bar and the status bar.
