VMware Fusion - Toggling back and forth...

 A friend had asked how one can switch out of full-screen whilst running a VM within VMware Fusion on the Mac.

I had a quick dig about, and found this: -

Return to Another View from Full Screen View

which says, in part: -

To see the Mac desktop and the virtual machine desktop at the same time, or to see a guest application in a window on the Mac desktop, switch to Unity view or Single Window view.

To have your virtual machine appear in a single window on the Mac desktop, exit to Single Window view. To display guest application windows directly on your Mac desktop without seeing the virtual machine's desktop, exit to Unity view.
Procedure

    To exit Full Screen to Single Window view, in the Full Screen title bar, select View > Single Window, or use the keyboard shortcut Command key+Control+F.
    To exit Full Screen to Unity view, in the Full Screen title bar, select View > Unity, or use the keyboard shortcut Command key+Shift+U.

Whilst I'm not making use of Unity, the first tip - [command] [control] [f] - did the job nicely. For the record, I'm using VMware Fusion 12.0.0 on macOS Catalina 10.15.7, waiting for macOS Big Sur 11 to arrive .....

Thanks, VMware
