You can access virtual machine applications, guest operating system functions, and VMware Fusion functions from the applications menu icon that appears in the Apple menu bar.

With the VMware Fusion applications menu, you can think about your virtual computing environment in terms of applications rather than virtual machines. The applications menu is a single source for finding every application on every virtual machine on your Mac.

The applications menu is useful when you use Unity view as your working environment. You can access the contents of the Windows start menu without having the taskbar visible and can access the Virtual Machine and View menu without having VMware Fusion be the active application.

You can set up the Fusion applications menu for quick access to applications in your virtual machines from your Mac.

You can find and open any virtual machine application from the applications menu that is always present in the Apple menu bar on the Mac.
