Wont load fullscreen after installing VB Guest additions on kali

Tried to install VirtualBox and VirtualBox guest additions, no problem installing VB and then installing Kali but after install guest additions it wont load fullscreen on reboot or after i log in.

Screen has gotten bigger i guess, i can scroll up and down some and same to the sides. Why wont it go fullscreen?
