When i record my screen I often switch between VMs. One of the annoyances that I’ve always dealt with is that the name of the VM appears for a few moments when you switch between the VMs. I later need to edit this out of the videos. After dealing with this for some time I decided to see if there was a way to disable it. Here’s how to do it.
- Navigate to your
~/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/preferencesfile and open it in your text editor of choice.
- Add the line
fusion.ui.fullscreen.nameBadge = "FALSE"to the file and save.
After restarting VMware Fusion you should no longer see the semi-transparent VM name when switching between VMs.
