The vSphere Web Client is a browser-based interface for configuring and administering virtual machines.

When you first log in to the vSphere Web Client, a home page appears with an object navigator pane that you can use to browse for inventory objects. The home page also contains a search box that you can use to run a global search across all applications and objects, a central pane that contains information about a selected object, and a side panel that contains panes for tasks, events, and so on.

You can return to partially finished work by using the Work in Progress pane. In the My Recent Tasks pane, you can see completed tasks, failed tasks, and tasks that are currently running.
