VM Console full-screen

Is there any way to get rid of the title bar or to make a VM full screen on the guest op?

can you right click on the VM and choose, open console? That won't necessaryily bring up full screen, but if you maximize the window and change the display settings of the VM, you'd be close.

Yeah I can open the console, however, I am trying to find out if it is possible to go fullscreen as if I turned on a regular standalone box. Do you know if that is even possible?

Is there a reason why you would want to go full screen? Accessing the console of a guest through virtual center usually isn't the fastest. Using RDP with the console switch provides much better performance on a windows system, and even vnc on linux is better in most cases.

Open the stand-alone console. Go to view (Full Screen) Or Ctrl-Alt-Enter.

That will give full screen view.

This option is only available in 2.5, so if you have an older build, you won't be able to view full screen.
