I cannot seem to get CentOS 8 to run full screen in VMware Workstation. Additionally, there doesn't seem to be an appropriate resolution under display settings. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing open-vm-tools (10.3.0.5330 (build-8931395)) as well as installing vmware-tools (10.1.6 (build-5214329)) from VMWare Workstation.
Under VMware Workstation > View options, Autosize is set to Autofit Gues. The "Fit Guest Now" and "Fit Window Now" are grayed out. I've also tried setting the VM display settings from "Use host setting for machines" to "Specify monitor settings" to no avail.
Using VMware Workstation 12 Pro 12.5.9 build-7535481 CentOS Linux release 8.0.1905 (Core)
