    Simply browse to your ISO file, as told in step 4.8. It will use the ISO file to install, not an ISO which is burned to USB.

    Ah, OK. Thanks.

    I'll work on it more tomorrow. I'm about three hours late for bedtime.

    Well, of course I did something wrong.

    I seem to have been successful in creating the virtual machine and installing Windows 10 Build 14986 to it. However, I cannot get a full screen; It's about half as wide as my 24" monitor and about 4/5 as tall. Nothing I do seems to help.

    The "full screen" box is there at the top and there are arrows that should allow me to enlarge from the sides, top/bottom or lower right corner. They do nothing, though.

    What have I done wrong and can I correct my problem without starting over? And, if I have to start over, how do I delete everything I've already done?

    That usually fixes itself after the first reboot. Doing a check for updates, just in case - let it update the drivers for the display. And check the settings for that VM (in Hyper-V manager, right click the VM itself) and make sure the guest settings is on at the bottom of the menu). After all that, reboot.

    Should work.

    @Wynona, could you please make a screenshot when your Windows vm is running on your desktop (full screen screenshot of all what's shown on your real, physical display, including the vm window).

    Post it then here.

    I couldn't figure out how to update the display drivers, unless I go to HP and see if they have any new ones. However, although this machine's only about three years old, HP has nothing for Windows 10.

    And there's no Guest Settings on the bottom of that menu.

    I've rebooted and it's still the same. I've uploaded the full page screenshot Kari asked for.

    OK @Wynona, I only wanted to see a little tell-tale, sorry for asking a full screen screenshot but I thought this is fastest and easiest way for you to make the screenshot and us to see it

    The telltale is here, the notification area of your vm:

    I wanted to know if you are using your vm in normal or enhanced mode. As the normal mode does not have any audio device, the red X is shown over the volume icon in notification area. In enhanced mode volume icon (read = audio device) works. From this small detail you can always tell which mode your vm is using.

    OK, your vm is in normal mode and you change the resolution of your vm as you would do on any physical computer. Simply right click on an empty spot on desktop (on vm, that is), select Display settings, select Advanced display settings on bottom of the right pane, and finally select your preferred resolution.

    I like to run mine windowed, not full screen, with 1600 * 900 resolution if using a 1920 * 1080 or bigger display, in 1366 * 768 if running vm on 1600 * 900 display.

    Thanks, Kari. I'd seen that while I was searching for a solution, but didn't think that was the problem. Ha!

    I jacked it up to 1366 x 768, but came back down to 1920 x 1080.

    Does my computer decide whether I can operate in normal or enhanced mode?

    No, it's not your computer that decides it. It's the guest OS, Windows version on vm must be Windows 8.1 or later (desktop versions) or Windows Server 2012 R2 or later (server versions).

    Enhanced Mode also requires a user account on vm to have a password, or if using with user account without password that user must be added to Remote Desktop Users group in guest OS.
