Any way for 'reverse' Unity while full screen in guest vm?

Posted on 2012-09-21
Last Modified: 2013-01-20
I have VMware Workstation 9 on my Windows 7 host running a Linux guest.  I'm trying to immerse myself in Linux so I'm running the guest in full screen mode a lot, but was wondering if there was any way to work with applications on the Win7 host (specifically Outlook 2010 for Exchange mailbox and some other Windows only apps) without having to switch out of the guest OS.  

Thanks in advance

    Wish I could but unfortunately this is a laptop that's usually in the field

    Doesn't look like it's possible.  I decided to reload and install Linux as the host OS, with Win7 as guest

    You can use citrix's seamless windows. Citrix has a 90 or 120 day trial.

    This is similar to the error described in my previous Article, but with a different source problem and a different solution. When trying to scan and stage the ESXi 6.0 updates using VMware Update Manager, we can get "error code 90"
