It seems that you've installed Fedora inside VirtualBox, right? If yes, you probably need to install "VirtualBox Guest Addittions" inside Fedora, so that it can use better resolutions for your hardware.

If you've enabled RPMFusion repositories, you might install VirtualBox-guest-additions with dnf. Or, you can select it from VirtualBox menus so that it adds a disk with required installation material in your Fedora guest.

After successfully installing VirtualBox Guest Additions into your Fedora, reboot and you'll hopefully enjoy the desired resolution.
