Hi Sid
Please try the below command, it is slightly different than the previous which you used.

Hi,
Once give a try to the New VMware tools, or you can simply use the VMware Workstation Pro 15 which has fixed the problem of full screen.

1. Open the System Preferences -> Security & Privacy to confirm -> General tab in the guest, make sure there is nothing to allow.

2. Virtual Machine -> Reinstall VMware Tools. Open volume “VMware Tools”, double click “Uninstall VMware Tools”, then reinstall it.

Hello. I too was unable to get a resolution any higher than 1439×1007…THEN I figured out the solution:

Under “Display scaling”, UNCHECK, “Automatically adjust user interface size in the virtual machine”

Now whatever size window, including full-screen, runs at the proper resolution.

Enjoy!

I believe the command should be:
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool NO

The name of the preferences file should include .plist

I got it: VMWare tools from Unlocker 3.02 for Workstation 15 couldn’t be installed correctly unless you disable SIP. Therefore I used this how to to get into the recovery mode within the VM: https://techsviewer.com/how-to-boot-a-macos-mojave-virtual-machine-to-recovery-mode/#tab-con-1

After this simple disable SIP csrutil disable and reinstall VMWare Tools.
