    Clipboard sharing and drag-n-drop not working with VirtualBox


    In VirtualBox, I have enabled bidirectional clipboard sharing and drag-n-drop. However, neither works.

    Anybody have any ideas about what might be wrong?

    Well, figured out that I had to install Guest Additions on the guest VM.

    This was done by mounting the ISO and then running the installer from inside the guest Windows VM.

    I was too late, in your other thread, on this.
    Nice, you've figured it out!

    Thanks. This is not in the installation tutorial on tenforums. I think it would be very helpful to add the couple extra steps.

    Install Windows 10 Virtual Machine in VirtualBox

    I started a new thread, because it was a totally different issue than my original thread described and I figured it would be easier for people to find.
