Recently I started using macOS full-time and I have to start using VirtualBox as my default Windows option inside Mac. The performance was good but I noticed it drags over the time usage then I came across this thread to use a special option “Open Low Resolution” for VirtualBox settings.
However, I didn’t find it in macOS Monterey. For some reason Apple engineers took away this option from the Application –> Get Info window.
Few other resources explained how this can be still set in advanced mode using by editing the file.
I edited two Info.plist files which are
sudo nano /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/Resources/VirtualBoxVM.app/Contents/Info.plist
- Save the changes with keys control-O (^O) to WriteOut
- Exit the editor window with keys control-X (^X) to Exit
This file I found in my first VirtualBox installation but it’s not visible when I installed VirtualBox over again. However it might help
sudo nano /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/Resources/Info.plist
The final effect I noticed when the resolution of VirtualBox window itself changed by showing bold texts as below
