So I installed Windows 95 on Virtualbox. I wanted to fix the colors from 16 to 32 colors and have the highest screen resolution possible. I installed Scitech Display Doctor in order to combat this problem. After installing all the drivers and setting my monitor, I wanted to change my screen resolution and colors. I wen t to display properties but ended up with I never ending window and no way for me to press apply. Is there any way to fix this abnormal problem?

I am not sure to get it (actually I am sure I don't get it).
Your screenshot is of a windowed VM, what happens if you make the windows larger (or full-screen)? :unsure:
Which resolution is your "real" display?

My real resolution is 1280 by 800. The resolution in the VM is 640 by 480. If I drag the window in the VM it keeps going and going and there is no end. I want to fix that so I am able to save my changed settings.

I will try again.
Can you maximize the VM window and post a screenshot of it?
