Are you talking about virtualbox as in the software from virtualbox.org?

If so did you try "Host key + F" keyboard combination? The "Host" key is usually the Right-Ctrl button. So try RightCtrl+F

No problem. I use virtualbox myself. Usually a message box will appear explaining this the first time you maximize the window - maybe you missed it.
