Normally there should be no need for this, if your video card is supported and it isn't too old, it should automatically use your display's native resolution. Sometimes if there is a KVM switch between your display and PC it might not be selected automatically.

Please give us some details on your hardware (Video card, Display, and if you are using a KVM switch).

Thank you ... Its is the monitors native resolution .. Benq GL2450. Its not the the list of available resolutions in the settings panel, no KVM .  I am running in vmware workstation though so need to give it the resolution for full screen Its not a big issue, maybe fine on native hardware

If you are running it as a VM within VMware, make sure the VMware tools are installed inside the VM. Once that is done and you select full-screen mode, it should display using the native resolution of your host OS. If you don't use full screen mode, you should be able to pull the window of the VM out using the mouse, and if I remember correctly, the size should automatically adjust itself to the size you are pulling it out to. At least that's how I remember VMware Workstation Player works, and VirtualBox also works that way. You just pull out the edge of the window and it resizes automatically. There should be no need to adjust the size using Makulu's System Center.

I've just installed MakuluLinux Aero Edition as a VMware Workstation Player VM, and as I mentioned above, if the VMware Tools are installed you can just pull at an edge of the VM's Window to resize it, and the resolution is automatically adjusted to fit the size you have pulled the Window to. I used the tools you get via Makulu's package Manager, Synaptic, but if you install the legacy drivers of VMware (Player, Manage, install VMware tools, then install them from the CD image that gets mounted in Makulu manually), you'll probably get even better results.
