VMware Player Quality of Life Fixes

October 22, 2017

Here’s a few quality-of-life fixes for VMware Player. Mainly a note to myself, but maybe you’ll find them useful as well.

Edit %AppData%\VMware\preferences.ini and add the following:

# Change default VM location
prefvmx.defaultvmpath = "C:\Path\To\VMs"

# Fully hide the top menu in full-screen mode.
pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = "TRUE"
