HD resolution full screen guest on UHD resolution host – possible?

This post was originally published on this site



I have a laptop with UHD screen – native resolution 3840 x 2160.

Host is Win10 x64 Pro, guest is Win7 x64 Pro.


Inside the guest I have software that can’t be used on high-resolution screens (Siemens TIA Portal).
So I need the guest to have HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, but to keep the native 3840 x 2160 resolution of the host.

Is that possible?


If I reduce the host resolution to 1920 x 1080 , the guest looks OK – but the host does not.
If I keep the host at 3840 x 2160, and reduce the guest resolution to 1920 x 1080 – the guest becomes small, takes only 1/4 of the screen.


So is it somehow possible to keep the high resolution for the host and see the guest in full screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution?
