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

Unity view works only if VMware Tools is installed in the virtual machine.


In your Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 virtual machine, open the applications to use in Unity view.


From the View menu, select Unity.

The virtual machine window is hidden, and the open applications are displayed in windows on the Mac desktop and as icon tiles in the Mac dock.
