VMWare Fusion - Prevent COMMAND+Q from closing VMWare Fusion
April 21, 2016 3:51 AM
I'm a keyboard person, so I use a lot of key combination to get things done, and one of them is COMMAND+Q to quit an application.
Unfortunately, when running a virtual machine in VMWare Fusion, comes with a little problem when it comes to my keyboard shortcut habits.
When for example running an application in a Windows virtual machine, I tend to press COMMAND+Q as well ... which close VMWare Fusion. Argh!
I already submitted a suggestion to VMWare to use the "press COMMAND+Q twice" approach as seen in Google Chrome, but I have no idea if they will implement this.
In the meanwhile you can disable COMMAND+Q in VMWare Fusion as follows:
- Start VMWare Fusion
- Go to Preferences
- Click on Keyboard & Mouse
- Select Fusion Shortcuts
- Uncheck " Quit "
Now you can start a virtual machine and try using " Command+Q" and you'll see ... it won't close VMWare Fusion.
