    Nothing as of yet...

    I can get it to install using it in compatibility mode as Windows XP SP3 but it doesn't actually help with anything.
    Been looking through the VirtualBox community and seen nothing there either.

    Hang on, there may be a work around but I'm not in a position to test just yet..

    This link is aimed at Windows 8 however seen a post in the VirtualBox community saying it worked for them on 10?

    How can I get Windows 8 and VirtualBox to use my full screen? - Super User

    This is where i saw it, towards the bottom of the thread:

    I can test later.

    FYI... VMWare Tools install fine on W10 running in VMWare Player. You might want to hold off on VB until they update the Guest Additions to work with W10.

    Jamie,did some testing,based on the "solutions" given over at VBox forums,forcing guest additions to install,didnt make it.
    And while I gave hyper-v a chance,i actually "crippled" all my 64bit virtual machines,something like,your virtual processor does not support 64bit OS and stuff like that.Disabled hyper-v,got everything back,installing 10 again.
    Hey strollin,sure will give VMWare a try,if VBox's dev's,get late releasing an updated version or GA of current version.But to be fair,its an only two days,not finalized,new OS,VBox has to be excused!

    Cheers for doing the testing, sorry it didn't work.
    I have given VM Player a go and it's doing a very good job so will stick with this for now.

    Strolin,got to give you some credit,about VMware!
    Had an account at VMware(needed a converter maybe two years ago),got version 6.0.3 for free.
    Installed its tools right after first boot to to a vm,full screen right away,way to play with an OS!

    At least it's easy enough to share a network folder (it is from a Win 8.1 Pro host, anyway) so I'm not really missing the Shared Folders feature of Guest Additions.

    I installed W10 in VBox and had no problems with installing VBox or
    the OS on it. But, what a disappointment in the viewing experience.

    I had a peek at W7 when it was in Beta. I had it on a VMWare and
    Everything worked flawlessly. That what a V machine should look

    I finally dual booted with 7 and I just can't say enough on how good
    this looks compared to a Vmachine.

    The problem with VBox is that the Guest Additions aren't compatible with W10 and can't be installed. The VBox team will probably release updated Guest Additions that do support W10 soon.
