display resolution not changing

I have Windows 11 ARM in a guest machine.

I've installed VMWare tools.

When I resize the guest window, the guest screen resolution is staying the same.

How do I fix it so the resolution size changes as I resize the guest window?

You can't. There is not a full VMware Tools implementation in Windows 11 ARM VMs that recognizes the window resizing and "kicks" Windows to change the resolution.

The screen resolution can only be changed from within the VM on Windows 11 ARM VMs. This is a known restriction. 

A more complete collection of known "not implemented" features with Fusion 13 on Apple Silicon can be found in the Unofficial Fusion 13 for Apple Silicon Companion Guide.
