    Hoping to get a bit of assistance here. I have a Linux Mint (Cinnamon) vm running on Workstation Pro 16 on my previous gaming laptop.

    I installed NoMachine so that I could connect remotely to the vm rather than use rdp to the host laptop and then full screen the VMware session. That works ok, actually, but you can’t get clipboard support that way.

    I can never figure out what are the optimal display settings. It seems very confusing with all the options. Right now I have set it to best quality and 1920×1200. It looks ok when full screen, but there is still a tiny bit of fuzziness and stretching.

    I just can’t seem to figure out how to get that “sweet spot” for display.

    Could someone maybe recommend some settings that might help remove that lingering fuzzy/stretch that is still going on?

    Thank you!



    Hi. Open the Display menu bar and verify that “Scale to window” is NOT selected, because that is generally the reason why you see some stretching. You should select “Enable viewport mode” and choose in Display settings the same resolution of your client display, so when going fullscreen you’ll have a perfect 1:1 ratio. Let us know if this helps.
