Special-Purpose Configuration Options
The following sections describe how to use special-purpose configuration options:
In some situations you may find it useful to restrict a user's ability to reconfigure virtual machines and to simplify the user interface for inexperienced users. In a classroom, for example, you may want to ensure that virtual machine configurations remain consistent from one class session to the next.
The special-purpose configuration options available on Windows hosts meet these needs.
Administrative lockout is a global setting for VMware Workstation itself and affects all virtual machines. Restricted user interface affects only the specific virtual machines for which the setting has been made. Full screen switch mode affects the way VMware Workstation itself runs and, as a result, affects all virtual machines.
These options are available on Windows hosts only.
