When you use a virtual machine in Workstation, you can transfer files and text between the host system and the virtual machine, print to host printers, connect removable devices, and change display settings.

You can also use folders to organize and manage virtual machines, and take snapshots to preserve virtual machine states.

With more advanced Workstation features, you can map virtual disks, set up shared folders to share files between virtual machines and between virtual machines and the host system, share virtual machines with remote users, and use virtual machines on remote hosts. See Using VMware Workstation for complete information on these and other advanced features.
