Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Usually, I'll start a few long time running applications (such as Instant Messaging application, email client application...) in guest OS, when a message/email received, the application icon in notification/tray area will blink or changed. But I can't see the blinking icon unless the guest OS windows is focused. It's bad if the message/email is important and I can't get notified.

Is there a way to bring visual notification of notification/tray icons (and even task bar) of guest OS to host OS?

I'm currently using

  • VMware Player
  • VMware vSphere Client

If possible, visual notification is better sent to each host OS which running VMware vSphere Client which connected to same guest OS.
