Help I'm having a really bad problem. I just updated my Kali 2017 virtual machine (apt update && apt upgrade) and tried two instances both before installing vmware tools and after. Regardless, after installing the new upgrade as of 8/20/17 I still can't get full screen. I'm about to pull my beard out.
