You can review all snapshots for the active virtual machine and act on them by using the Snapshot Manager.
After you take a snapshot, you can use the Revert to Latest Snapshot command from the virtual machine’s right-click menu to restore that snapshot at any time. If you have a series of snapshots, you can use the Revert to command in the Manage Snapshots dialog box to restore any parent or child snapshot. Subsequent child snapshots that you take from the restored snapshot create a branch in the snapshot tree. You can delete a snapshot from the tree in the Snapshot Manager.
The Manage Snapshots dialog box contains a snapshot tree, details region, command buttons, and a You are here icon.
