With Workstation Pro on a Windows host system, you can rename a network you previously added to a name that is meaningful to you.

You cannot change the name of a network in the following situations.

  • On a Linux host

  • On a network Workstation Pro created automatically, such as VMnet0. VMnet1, or VMnet8.

  • On a shared or remote virtual machine.


Add a virtual network. See Add a Bridged Virtual Network or Add a Host-Only Network.


  1. Select Edit > Virtual Network Editor.
  2. Select an added network.

    The network must be one you added, not VMnet0. VMnet1, or VMnet8.

  3. Click Rename Network.
  4. Enter a new name and click OK.


The network is renamed.
