Well I know that a lot of people like the idea of the penetration testing aspects of kali plus there is the course on it that bleeping offers.

However its not a windows user distro, plus if you have to ask questions about Kali you really should not be using it.

This isnt me saying I want to be unhelpful or anything but Kali isnt exactly that newb friendly to those who are fresh to the linux world

Unfortunately we do not have enough details on your first post, are you talking about the screen resolution, hdd size? Terminal size? 

 

and you said you should push "Host + F" are you on a Virtual Machine?.

 

 

And i agree Security Distros "Pen Testing Distros" are definitely not for new comers to the linux world, you can't just jump straight in and start testing. there are things that need to be setup before one dives in.

Never said you were, I wasnt trying to sound insulting.

I just know Kali has got a lot of attention in the media as like I said Edward Snowden used it so it has this aura around it making it look like magic

yes that has everything to do with resolution, sounds like something went wrong with xorg (the graphical server)

So your HDD size has changed then?

 

If not the HDD then what is changing?

could you add screenshots?

 

 

EDIT: just saw that you are on a VM, try increasing your Video memory to 128 or higher.

Hey i dont think the problem is the HDD its the problem with the screen size where they ask you to press Host + F unfortunately i cant take any screenshots, it either doesnt work for it or there are other keys for screenshots i tried normal keys and nothing

you can hit "PrtScn" with your mouse outside the VM, and paste it into paint, then export as jpg if you're on windows hosting the VM.

 

and the VM screen size should be smaller than your normal screen size so you can switch back and forth. 

 

Which VM are you using? I use Oracle VirtualBox. and on my 1680x1050 screen i set the VM res at 1024x768, or 1280x720.
