In KVM/QEMU machine window size by default matches guest OS resolution. But if I resize windows (accidently) how to restore default size?


By pressing: CtrlAltu

Source: http://linux.die.net/man/1/qemu-kvm

In the future, you can also try to use man (in a terminal). This gives you the user manual. You can seek a word by pressing "/" (without the quotes) and then cycle through the references using "n":

man qemu
/restore <enter>

To quit, type "q".

    The same man page you're linking to offers a quicker solution: press Ctrl+Alt+U. – Marius Gedminas Jan 28 '15 at 9:19
  • @MariusGedminas quicker? It's exactly the same as this answer suggests. – Ruslan Mar 31 at 9:29
  • @Ruslan the answer was edited to include the quicker solution, which is great, but now makes my comment look silly, as you've noticed. – Marius Gedminas Mar 31 at 19:01
  • @MariusGedminas if you look at the edit history, you'll see the (differently formatted, but the same) solution already there in v1. – Ruslan Mar 31 at 19:22
  • You're right! I don't know how I'd missed it! – Marius Gedminas 2 days ago

Assimunig you're talking about virt-manager or virt-viewer:

Click "View", select "Resize to VM"

  • I don't use virt-*. I have only qemu window and qemu console – atomAltera Jan 8 '13 at 9:05
