You can use VMware Remote Console to adjust the amount of memory that is allocated to a virtual machine.

Note: This function is not available in Linux. The VMware Remote Console Linux client cannot perform operations on powered-off virtual machines.


  1. Access the target virtual machine in VMware Remote Console.
  2. Power off the virtual machine.
  3. Open the virtual machine settings in VMware Remote Console.
    • On Windows, select VMRC > Manage > Virtual Machine Settings.
    • On macOS, select Virtual Machine > Settings.
  4. Open the memory settings.
    • On Windows, open the Hardware tab and click Memory.
    • On macOS, click Processors and Memory.
  5. Enter or select the desired amount of memory for the virtual machine.


The virtual machine is updated to reflect your changes.
