Virtual box and Dell XPS 15

Just acquired a Dell XPS 15 through a new job. I have been setting up a few Windows and Linux Servers as VM's using Virtualbox.

There is a real problem with resolution when initially installing just about any guest OS. It makes it firstly hard to install and secondly difficult to work with.
Enter the world of Scaling VM displays. This is a fantastic help however it comes with its own problems.

A problem with scaling is the menu for the running  VM you have focused on goes missing by default, therefore, you can't do things like installing guest additions whilst in that mode.
