When you want to create a virtual machine in Workstation, you typically use the New Virtual Machine wizard. You can create a virtual machine in a minimum number of steps by selecting the typical configuration option in the New Virtual Machine wizard.

With Workstation, you can also clone virtual machines from existing virtual machines or virtual machine templates, import Open Virtualization Format (OVF) and third-party virtual machines, create virtual machines that remote Workstation users can use, and create virtual machines on remote hosts. See Using VMware Workstation for information on these advanced features.
