Change Default Location For Fusion VMs
In VMWare Workstation and Oracle VirtualBox is relatively straightforward to change the default location for new virtual machines. But for some reason in Fusion this option is not exposed via the GUI. So we need to do a bit of digging.
- Open up
~/Library/Preferences/VMWare Fusion/preferencesin a text editor.
- Save a backup of the VMWare Fusion preferences file and then edit the original:
cd ~/Library/Preferences/VMWare\ Fusion cp preferences preferences.backup vi preferences
- Find the line starting with
prefvmx.defaultVMPathand edit it.
