VMware Workstation Pro 15.5.0 is the latest version of VMware Workstation Pro. VM basically stands for a virtual machine which is a computer contained in the software. Running VM is like running a computer on a computer. VMware Workstation is free of cost and the best available desktop virtualization app in the market. It is one of the best options for those who want to run an OS in the virtual machine. It is packed with powerful features and supports a wide range of operating systems. VMware updates its applications with dedication so it can support even the latest hardware and operating systems.
The user interface of VMware Workstation is pleasing to eyes and enjoyable to use due to its catchy environment and easy to understand nature. When the users initially launch the VMware Workstation, they are greeted with a screen that welcomes them and allows them to create a new virtual machine, edit the networks and connect to remote servers and all this and much more at a very fast speed.
Building a new VM is basically an easy task with all the right tools of VMware Workstation. It detects which operating system is being installed and ask relevant questions such as product keys to begin it’s working. It also installs the tools and drivers that are needed to create compatibility between them and the native environment of the desktop. Different VMs are shown in different tabs making it easier for the users to jump between the VMs. The tabbed interface of the workstation allows the users to quickly access all the settings and virtual machines from the home tab. Once the user is inside a VM, the workstation displays a persistent toolbar on to the screen so users can access handy features including full screen, video capture, unity, etc. The simplicity of the interface enables the users to take snapshots and restore the virtual machines easily.
Unity mode is a feature of VMware Workstation that integrates the applications of a virtual machine with that of the operating systems. Virtualize applications are marked clearly so it is easier for the users to distinguish them. Unity mode seamlessly blends both the operating systems to provide a smooth desktop experience to the users.
Users can easily alter the settings and control their Virtual Machines even in the Unity mode. The workstation enhanced its way of switching between the two Start menus as the start menu of VM shows up when the user hovers over the start button of the host system.
