➥ How does one change the screen resolution of their macOS Fusion guest?
On my Mac mini (2018) running macOS mojave 10.14.5, I am running VMware Fusion 11.1 with a BenQ 4K monitor on DisplayPort. Inside that is a macOS Mojave 10.14.6 guest OS.
I want that macOS guest to have its display resolution (size) grow when I stretch the VM window. I am used to this behavior as a feature in Parallels Desktop (competitor to Fusion).
When I stretch the VM window, the contents are stretched and pixelated but the logical size of the guest display does not change.
When I go to System Preferences > Displays > Display > Resolution > Scaled, I see no other options but
1024 x 768.
My Fusion preferences are set to the default,
Resize the virtual machine and the window. The documentation says that should change the resolution of guest VM.
