Ubuntu – Resize options on Ubuntu server virtualbox grayed out

servervirtualbox

Running Ubuntu server guest on Windows 7. Guest additions are installed properly to the best of my knowledge. But the resizing options are greyed out. The screen stays the same size in full screen and scaled option and "adjust window size" stays the same.

Whats am I doing wrong? How do I fixit?
Let me know if you need any specific information.

Don't bother installing Guest Additions, it won't help you resize the terminal. Instead SSH into your Ubuntu VM using a program like PuTTY. You can customize and resize a PuTTY terminal very easily. Using an SSH Client also helps you avoid bloating your server with unnecessary software.
