Make Ubuntu Fullscreen on Windows Hyper-V
I previously explained how to install Ubuntu 20.04 in a VM on Windows using Hyper-V. However, by default the VM display will not run in full resolution.
How to run Ubuntu 20.04 in full resolution & fullscreen mode
First, open the terminal and run the following command to open grub settings using nano editor.
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
Then, change the
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable to the following:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:1920x1080"
Ctrl+X to exit nano editor and then
Y followed by
Enter to save the changes.
Next, run the following command to update grub settings.
Finally, restart Ubuntu by running the following command.
Now, you have Ubuntu running in full screen mode with full resolution.
