Scaling problems in Vmware and Virtualbox


I'm having problems with scaling VMs in both the latest versions of Virtualbox and VMware Player. I'm running a Dell XPS 9560 laptop with a 4k display.

Basically the windows are extremely small, especially with text-only distros like Ubuntu Server 20.04. Ive tried every setting I could see in both programs. I tried increasing the video RAM, manually setting the display size, etc. I see no options at all for scaling in VB or VMware.

I can't do anything in these VMs as the text and graphics are too small to see. Any help is appreciated greatly.
