I want to use my Windows VM with multiple monitors (with Windows as host OS). I am using the VMware Workstation 16 Player.
While in full screen mode there is the option to Choose a monitor layout (see screenshot). That would be exactly what I want, but clicking any layout has no effect. Unity mode is working well, but not always what I need.
I played around with the Display settings in the virtual machine settings e.g. specifying the monitor settings directly. I have not tried to use a different guest OS, I want it to work for windows. There was also not setting inside the guest OS to enable more monitors or something similar.
