Needing some help with setting up a local linux fileserver

I actually haven't even gotten that far yet though. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 server, and the computer will be tucked away not connected to any monitors so I need to have a GUI when I remote into it. I have putty and whatnot set up and that works, but I can't seem to get a full gnome GUI when I remote in with vnc4server. All I get is a file browser over a gray background. No other desktop components like the activities button you typically get in the top left side.

 

Furthermore, I can't get the vncserver to launch at reboot, I keep having to manually type vncserver -geometry 1920x1080 -depth 24

what's funny is that it automagically started working as soon as I made this thread
