Exclusive mode is similar to full-screen mode in that the remote desktop fills the screen. Unlike full-screen mode, with exclusive mode the VMware Horizon Client menu bar and Dock do not appear when you move your cursor to the edges of the screen.

To enter exclusive mode, open a remote desktop in windowed mode, press and hold down the Option key, and select Window > Enter Exclusive Mode.

When a remote desktop is in windowed mode, you can also press Command-Control-Option-F to enter exclusive mode. To exit exclusive mode, press Command-Control-Option-F again.

Note:

If you do not press and hold down the Option key, the Enter Full Screen menu item appears instead of the Enter Exclusive Mode menu item. You cannot select the Enter Excusive Mode menu item if the remote desktop is in full-screen mode.

Using Exclusive Mode with Multiple Monitors

To use exclusive mode with two monitors, before you open the remote desktop, select Use All Displays from the Settings dialog box, and then open the desktop and enter exclusive mode. To use exclusive mode with a single monitor, before you open the remote desktop, select Use Single Display from the Settings dialog box, and then connect to the desktop and enter exclusive mode.

To open the Settings dialog box, click the Settings button (gear icon) in the upper right corner of the desktop and application window, select the remote desktop, and select an option from the Full Screen drop-down menu.
