Removing the VMware Toolbar in Fullscreen Mode

If you’re using and Ubuntu virtual machine with VMware Player and are having a problem with the toolbar covering the Ubuntu toolbar then this should fix the problem:

  1. Open “C:\Documents and Settings\<your account>\Application Data\VMware\preferences.ini”
  2. Add this line to the bottom of the file:    pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = “TRUE”

The “Application Data” folder in C:\Documents and Settings\<your account>\ is typically a hidden folder so you’ll need to view the hidden files to find it.
