To work with your virtual machine applications from the Mac desktop without the VMware Fusion interface, use Unity view.

In Unity view, your virtual machine's window is hidden, and your open virtual machine applications appear in the Mac dock. You can use the virtual machine applications just as you use your native Mac applications.

Unity view is supported in several Windows operating systems, and enables you to use many Mac functions with your guest applications.

You can switch to Unity view from an application open in another view.

Some operating system activities that require a response do not appear in Unity view. VMware Fusion displays the Waiting for Unity window to enable you to respond.

You can have the Windows taskbar or system tray visible while in Unity view.

You must manually connect USB devices when your virtual machine is running in Unity view.

To see the desktop of the virtual machine, you can switch from Unity view to Single Window view or Full Screen view.
