After I have installed VMWare Workstation 7 on my Win 7 all USB devices are not working / showing up on my host machine ??
Enable your USB device in Host OS using VM (in the menubar) -> Removable devices. On your selected device click "Connect".
I have been experimenting with VMware workstation. When I autohide the toolbar at the top, it leaves a 1 pixel sliver. While this is functional, my OCD is bugging me. Is there a way to totally hide the toolbar?
If this is a desktop machine, you can try adjusting the positioning of your LCD monitor to shift one pixel up.
The only other way I know of is to go to "Quick Switch" mode, then go to the menu bar and select View and deselect tabs.
This will give you a screen with no borders at all, but you can still get to a menu at the top of the screen. However, you lose the quick switch ability - but it should do what you want!
Took me a little searching to find the answer to this because I didn't want to change the position of my screens. If you go to Edit > Preferences > Display > Uncheck "Show toolbar edge when unpinned in full screen" you'll be all set!
Go fullscreen, then select View -> Exclusive Mode from the menu.
You can press the host key (default Ctrl+Alt) to get out of it.
For VMWare Player users, you can edit the preferences file at C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\VMware\preferences.ini and add:
pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = "TRUE"
The above setting doesn't work on newer versions. Try this instead:
pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = 1
