How to Get Original Screen Resolution for Your Vmware Mac OS X

Windows users love to use Mac OS X to their computer in a different way. Virtually installation using Vmware workstation, Vmware Playstation, virtual box is popular most among them. In Vmware based Mac Os we sometimes don’t get actual screen resolution of it due to different reason. It may be due to lack of Mac OS drivers or something else. But our main motto is to get original display resolution.

Some other common problems those VMware Mac users generally face:

When I install Mac OS X using Vmware, I find no scaled display option other than 1024×768. But the recommended screen resolution for my 18.5 inchs AOC desktop is 1366×768. But how can I get the resolution back in my Mac OS X?

Here is the first display option that I get after first Mac Os X virtual installation.

Now a free Mac VGA driver for Vmware can do the trick for you. Download Mac VGA Driver for VMware from Here. After downloading the driver software, install it. You will need administrator password for installing the software. After complete installation just restart Mac Os X and you will find the following changes.

Do Check:

Navigate to System Preferences >> Display and you will find different screen resolution options as shown in the below picture.
