full screen w7 on i mac

Specs: Mac os 10.5.8
Is there a way of getting a full screen view of my software in windows 7 on the mac. I'm using Virtual Box to run the win7 on the mac . But in full screen mode only a small area is actually used by the program.

Two or three issues affect this.

Virtualbox has a hot key that allows full screen. It may or may not work since I can't tell from your post exactly what is wrong. See the Virtualbox documentation (might be on the pull down menu as a cheat) like crtl-f or g or something like that.

Other is that you may need a driver installed into W7 to support the virtual video driver in virtualbox.

Another is the resolution in W7 has to be increased.

Last would be to install additions or guest additions.
