VMware Fusion: Configure a virtual machine to start when Fusion launches

by Scott Lowe [Published on 30 Sept. 2012 / Last Updated on 30 Sept. 2012]

Many of you probably have common virtual machines you use on your Mac.  In my case, I have a Windows 8 virtual machine that I use quite heavily and that I have running under Fusion 5. To save yourself a little bit of time, you can configure a virtual machine to start automatically as soon as your start Fusion. To do so, open your virtual machine and, from the Virtual Machine menu, choose the Get Info option. In the resulting window, select the checkbox next to Start automatically when VMware Fusion starts. The next time you start Fusion, the virtual machine will start immediately afterwards.
