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

Unity view is fully supported in virtual machines running Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Unity view is experimentally supported in virtual machines running Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 (32-bit and 64-bit), 2008, and 2012.

You can use the Command key + C, Command key + X, and Command key + V Mac keyboard shortcuts to copy, cut, and paste text between your Mac applications and virtual machine applications displayed in Unity view. You can also use the Exposé feature with virtual machine applications in Unity view, and you can use Command key + Tab to switch between applications.

You can keep your virtual machine applications in the dock after you power off your virtual machine and quit VMware Fusion. To use a virtual machine application, click the application in the dock to launch VMware Fusion and open the application. You can also set virtual machine applications to open when you start up your Mac and log in.

You can access, in Unity view, all your available virtual machine applications by using the always-on Applications menu. See Using the VMware Fusion Applications Menu.
