I've just installed trial version of Windows Server 2012 DataCenter edition inside VMWare Workstation 10.0. So far, I did not have any problems with putting virtual computers into full screen mode, so they look like 'real' host computers and not just a little screen inside VMWare. But with windows server 2012, this problem had arised. I can't get it to full screen mode. I have this little window inside VMWare machine, which is really annoying. What should I do?

A screenshot of this window would be helpful. You have installed the VMWare Tools which basically installs the required display drivers right? – Ramhound Dec 13 '13 at 14:14
did you install the vmware tools? – Keltari Dec 13 '13 at 14:38
Sorry guys, the solution was something I've never encountered before - I have to change screen resolution inside Windows Server. After that was OK and I have now full screen mode. – FrenkyB Dec 13 '13 at 15:13
