I really love using Hyper-V both for windows and also linux operating systems. For me, creating a new virtual machine is just like buying a new PC :) In this post, I am going to show you how to easily change screen resolution on an Ubuntu vm that resides inside Hyper-V virtualization environment.
Just follow those simple steps to change the screen resolution:
- Open a terminal window
sudo vi /etc/default/grub
- Find the line starting with
video=hyperv_fb:1280x720so the line should be like;
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:1280x720"
- Write changes to the file and exit using ESC +
sudo update-grubcommand to update grub configuration.
- Reboot the machine (You can use
sudo /sbin/shutdown -r nowcommand)
- Voila! Your VM now should start with the new resolution you provided.
