    Hello, I have macOS High Sierra on VMware Workstation 14 Pro. I also have Mac OS X El Capitan on the same. My question is, how do I change the display resolution to more than the default (1024x800 etc...)? I've tried reinstalling VMware tools, tried using Darwin.iso 10.1.1, and VMTools.iso from YouTube. None of them let me change the display to a higher resolution (1300x900.) I think I've done it on a VM in the past. Does anyone know how I can adjust the Display? On both VM's? Thanks

    There is no way to go any bigger than the maximum, you can only make smaller if you want.
    Resolution is a characteristic of the system, which always has a certain maximum value, and if you want a better one, you need to get a better system.
    You said "I think I've done it on a VM in the past.". You can dream, but not do.

    Hi, me again. Thanks for the replies. Well I guess I can't increase the Display. That's fine. I thought I did it before but if you say no than I guess I'm wrong. Thanks again
