Hi. Download and install these Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.2.6.vbox-extpack VBoxGuestAdditions_4.2.6.iso UserManual.pdf VirtualBox-4.2.6-82870-Win.exe from here http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.2.6/ It will take too long to explain how to use it, but the user manual is excellent for instructions and if you take your time you will be OK
