Using Full Screen Switch Mode
Full screen switch mode is a run-time option for the VMware Workstation program on Windows Hosts. When VMware Workstation is running in full screen switch mode, the user has no access to the VMware Workstation user interface. The user cannot create, reconfigure or launch virtual machines. A system administrator performs these functions.
When VMware Workstation is running in full screen switch mode, one or more virtual machines may be running and you can use hot keys to switch from one to another. You may also provide hot key access to the host operating system.
Note: Full screen switch mode is enabled for Windows hosts only. Linux hosts do not have full screen switch mode.
