from the manjaro vm you need to install virtualbox guest modules and guest utils and reboot the vm after

The default graphics adapter in VirtualBox is - weird right - VMSVGA which is a vmware adapter. Using that will give you issues with the screen not scaling very good.

So before you install Manjaro in VirtualBox VM the recommandation is

  • Set the graphical adapter to VBoxSVGA.
  • Set the graphics memorysize to 128MB
  • Enable 3D

When this is set you can scale the graphics as you please.
