    There should be no difficulty in changing the resolution from a VMs console, but can you give more information like:

    1. Is this a VM on ESX?

    2. Which client are you using to connect (C#/Webclient)?

    3. What's the guest OS, remote desktop host service running?

    To change resolution for your remote desktop session, I think you should select it before starting the session, i.e. before you start the remote session, expand Options | Display | Display configuration.

    To change the VMs resolution, connect to ESXi host, Open console of the VM from there and change the resolution the same way as above. Hope this helps.

    If you are using the MSTSC to connect with your virtual machine then use " mstsc /console "  to change the setting.

    This will fix your issue.
