Moving and Sharing Files with Your MacWith Fusion, you can move and share files between a virtual machine and your Mac. Sharing Applications Between Your Mac and Your Windows Virtual MachinesIn the Applications panel of the virtual machine Settings window, you can set up Fusion so that your Mac can open applications in a virtual machine or so that a virtual machine can open applications on your Mac, or both. Keep a Windows Application in the Mac DockYou can place an icon tile for a Windows application in your Mac dock, where you can open the application in the same way that you open your Mac applications. You can access your virtual machine's applications without having to use the VMware Fusion menu bar or the guest operating system interface. Switch Between Virtual Machines That Are Powered OnYou can operate multiple virtual machines at the same time, and can switch between them easily. Using Mac Input Devices in a Virtual MachineTo use Mac keyboards, mice, and trackpads in a virtual machine, you sometimes must change settings and use key combinations as equivalents to PC commands. Force Virtual Machines to Grab Keyboard and Mouse InputYou can set the virtual machine to grab mouse and keyboard input. When input is grabbed, the mouse pointer is confined to the virtual machine window, and all keyboard and mouse input is directed to the virtual machine.
