I have installed a Windows instance as a kvm guest on a host running
CentOS-6.5.  I can access the desktop through the virt-manager console and
everythign seems to work, although the mouse cursor seems to get lost from
time to time.

The virt-manager console display supports various resolutions but when I
re-size the desktop display remains essentially a square inside a letter box. 
 What other methods are available to open the windows desktop from the
CentOS-6.5 host console or by remote access that allow me to have a re-sizable
MS-Windows desktop display for this guest running on my normal (gnome2)

Any suggestions?
