Using Quick Switch Mode

Using Quick Switch Mode

Quick switch mode is similar to full screen mode with the addition of tabs at the top of the screen for switching from one active virtual machine to another. The virtual machine's screen is resized to fill the screen completely, except for the space occupied by the tabs.

To enter quick switch mode, choose View > Quick Switch.

To view the VMware Workstation menu and tool bar while you are using quick switch mode, move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen.

To resize a Windows guest operating system's display so it fills as much of the screen as possible in quick switch mode, choose View > Fit Guest to Window. The Fit Guest to Window option works only if you have the current version of VMware Tools installed in the guest operating system.

Note: When you choose Fit Guest to Window, VMware Workstation adjusts the display settings of your Windows guest operating system as needed. If you subsequently run the virtual machine in normal mode, you may want to change the display settings back to their previous values.

To get out of quick switch mode, move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen to activate the menu, then choose View > Quick Switch.
