You can change the way Workstation displays virtual machines and virtual machine applications. You can use full screen mode to make the virtual machine display fill the screen and use multiple monitors, and you can use Unity mode to display applications directly on the host system desktop.

You can also match the Workstation console with the guest operating system display size.

In full screen mode, the virtual machine display fills the screen and you cannot see the borders of the Workstation window.

Like full screen mode, exclusive mode causes the Workstation virtual machine display to fill the screen. You might want to use exclusive mode to run graphics-intensive applications, such as games, in full screen mode.

You can switch virtual machines that have Linux or Windows 2000 or later guest operating systems to Unity mode to display applications directly on the host system desktop.

If the host system has multiple monitors, you can configure a virtual machine to use multiple monitors. You can use the multiple-monitor feature when the virtual machine is in full screen mode.

If the host system has multiple monitors, you can run a different virtual machine on each monitor.

You can control the size of the virtual machine display and match the Workstation console with the display size of the guest operating system for an active virtual machine.
