Bounty: 50

I use Arch Linux (Kernel: 4.17.2-1-ARCH) with Gnome 3.28.2. Along with Virtual Box I have installed the following packages:

virtualbox-host-modules-arch  5.2.12-10
virtualbox-guest-modules-arch  5.2.12-10
virtualbox-guest-utils  5.2.12-2
virtualbox-guest-iso  5.2.12-1

Using Virtual Box I have a guest with Windows 10 64 bit.
I have installed the guest additions on the Windows 10 box.

The guest OS works fine, however, it supports only a small number of resolutions. Specifically the following:

Guest Available Resolutions

However my native resolutions is 1920×1080.

When using VirtualBox’s menu View -> Virtual Screen 1 I can see all available resolutions (including 1920×1080), however, selecting them does nothing.

I have also tried the guide provided by the Arch Linux Wiki. Specifically, I have run the command:

VBoxManage setextradata "Windows10" "CustomVideoMode1" "1920x1080x32"


VBoxManage setextradata "Windows10" "Virtual Screen 1" "1920x1080x32"

Unfortunately, nothing happens.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
