    Intel HD 5500 on Lenovo Ideapad 305 Screen Resolution Challenge

    I have a Levono 330 which device manager says has an Intel HD Graphics 5500 display and the max resolution is 1366 x 768. Not great but adequate.

    I installed the Oracle VM 5 (in order to run some old DOS software) and created a virtual XP machine - that was dead easy.

    Oracel VM defaulted the XO machine to a small window at 800x600. I changed the screen resolution and it allowed a maximum of 1600x1200 so whooppee, I selected 1600x1200. The screen resolution was visibly better than the 1366x768 that I had under native windows 10. So it would seem that the screen can cope with a higher resolution that 1366x768 - or am I kidding myself!?

    So how do I get Windows 10 to let me set a screen resolution of 1600x1200 that I can set in the VM?

    Silly boy. I just noticed that the increase dots come from increasing the size of hte screen to a point where it does not all fit on at the same time!! :-(
