drag and drop hyper-v in windows 8.1

3 posts in this topic

I have a guest win 7 using hyper-v on windows 8.1 pro. Is there a way to enable drag and drop? I have installed integrated services but that seems not work. Also, is there way to make "full screen" really full screen instead of a centered square surrounded by black border?

Just log into the machine via remote desktop then? Then it will just seem like a normal machine just the same :P

Problem 1: Drag & Drop is added through enhanced session mode:

 

Enhanced session mode provides the following new capabilities for Virtual Machine Connection sessions:

  • Display Configuration
  • Audio redirection
  • Printer redirection
  • Full clipboard support (improved over limited prior-generation clipboard support)
  • Smart Card support
  • USB Device redirection
  • Drive redirection
  • Redirection for supported Plug and Play devices

Windows Server 2012 R2: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn282274.aspx

Windows 8.1: http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/extremewindows/archive/2013/12/05/overview-client-hyper-v-enhanced-session-mode-in-windows-8-1.aspx

Note that this feature works with all editions of Windows 8.1 (host running Client Hyper-V) but only with the following VM images:

  • Windows 8.1 Enterprise
  • Windows Server 2012

    More information about supported features by OS edition is available in this blog post.

     

Problem 2: Centered Screen, Black Border - Increase the Guest VM's resolution through the guest VM's control panel (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution)
