You can use folders to organize and manage multiple virtual machines in the library. When virtual machines are in a folder, you can manage them on the folder tab and perform batch power operations.

When you add a virtual machine to a folder, it remains an independent entity, but you can also perform batch power operations. For example you can power on, suspend, and resume each virtual machine in a folder separately, or you can power on, suspend, and resume all of the virtual machines in a folder at the same time.

You can remove a virtual machine from a folder or move it to a different folder or subfolder.

When virtual machines are in a folder, you can manage them as a unit. For example, you can select multiple virtual machines on the folder tab and perform power operations on several virtual machines at the same time.

By default, when you power on several virtual machines in a folder, Workstation delays 10 seconds before powering on the next virtual machine. The power on delay avoids overloading the CPU on the host system when you power on multiple virtual machines. You can change the default power on delay setting by modifying a Workstation preference.

If you created a team in an earlier version of Workstation, you must convert the team before you can use the virtual machines in the current version of Workstation.
