I can't figure out how to get VMware to start up in unity mode. Is this possible? I want the guess OS to startup in unity mode, with selected application(s). I am using VMware workstation on the the local machine.
You can run entire desktop in Unity mode, but not single apps. To use Unity you have to install VMware Tools in the guest OS first, then click the Unity mode button in VMware. All windows will be switched to the Unity mode and guest's Start menu will appear.
