Arch LXC allows me to highlight/copy/paste in web interface but VM does not

Hi folks, quick question, newbie here. Using the web interface where I spend almost all my time, I installed an Arch VM and an Arch LXC and the LXC seems to be using a more dynamic font, has a blinking cursor block, and allows me to highlight, copy, and paste, right out of the gate. But the VM version looks thick and chunky like an old DOS prompt and has no mouse clickability or even menus available

What's the big difference and how do I set the VM to be more like the LXC?

I can provide screenshot if needed but I have a feeling you guys already know what I'm talking about - thanks very much!
