    I have just installed virtual box running windows 7 on my mac but sizing is a little awkward. I'm sure I saw a youtube vid a while ago where the guy swiped the screen to change it from osx to windows (can't find the clip)
    Anyone know how to set this up?
    thanks

    They probably had OS X and Windows running in "full screen mode", and then a simple swipe moves from one to the other.

    I usually have OS X desktop, Mail, Safari, and Windows VMware all in full-screen mode" windows and simple swipes move from one environment to another.

    Yeah ... just click on the "diagonal arrows" in the extreme upper-right corner of a window and it will become a full screen app. Then be sure your gestures are turned on in mouse / trackpad preferences to swipe between full screen windows.

    This is a great feature, especially on a smaller 11" Macbook Air! :)
