Click here for imageI have ubuntu OS runnning in virtualbox. When ubuntu starts it does not fit to the screen in fact it is bigger than the display and I need to use scroll bar to navigate to clock and shutdown button on right top corner.

I have latest guest additions installed. Check the versions below.

host OS : windows 7 virtualbox : 5.0.18 guest os : ubuntu 14.04.4


This issue is caused when oracle virtualbox software version and guest additions version are different. If you see any of the screen fitting issues make sure that versions of virtualbox software and guest additions are same.
