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 toolbar while you are using quick switch mode, move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen.
To resize a guest operating system's display so it fills as much of the screen as possible in quick switch mode, choose View > Fit Guest Now. The Fit Guest Now option works only if you have the current version of VMware Tools installed in the guest operating system.
Note: When you choose Fit Guest Now, VMware Workstation adjusts the display settings of your 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.
