I use VMWare-Player at work. The virtualization is very useful, but I have one major pet peeve with VMWare.
My workstation has two monitors. I usually have VMWare running full-screen on one monitor. Oftentimes, when I click on something on my real (not VMWare) machine (such as to open a new program, for example), a new window opens behind the VMWare window. I must either minimize or move the VMWare window in order to see the window that just opened.
How can I configure my machine so that VMWare will not obscure new windows that open?
