Cutting, Copying and Pasting

Cutting, Copying and Pasting

When VMware Tools is running, you can cut or copy then paste text between applications in the virtual machine and the host computer or between two virtual machines. Use the normal hot keys or menu choices to cut, copy and paste.

To turn off this feature - to prevent accidental copying and pasting from one environment to another - use the Settings menu.

On a Windows host, choose Settings > Preferences. On the Input tab, clear the Enable copy and paste to and from virtual machine check box.

On a Linux host, choose Settings > Input Preferences. On the cascading menu, check to see whether there is an activated icon next to Allow copy and paste to and from virtual machine. If there is, click Allow copy and paste to and from virtual machine to turn off the feature.
