Summary

This step-by-step article describes how to create shortcuts to virtual machines that you have created in Virtual PC. You can start a particular virtual machine by using a shortcut. You can also use these shortcuts to start virtual machines with various command-line commands enabled.

Create a Virtual Machine Shortcut

To create a virtual machine shortcut, follow these steps:
  1. Start Virtual PC.
  2. In the Virtual PC list, click the virtual machine for which you want to make a shortcut.
  3. Drag the virtual machine that you selected in step 2 to the desktop.

Modify the Startup Options of a Virtual Machine Shortcut

You can start virtual machines that are running under Virtual PC in several different modes by using command-line commands in the Target box of the shortcut. For example, when you use the -noshow switch, the virtual machine starts in a minimized window. Additionally, when you use the -fullscreen switch, the virtual machine starts in full-screen mode.

For information about Virtual PC command-line commands, see the "More Information" section of this article. To modify the command-line commands in a virtual machine shortcut, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the virtual machine shortcut that you want to modify, and then click Properties.
  2. In the Target box, type the command-line option that you want at the end of the path that appears in the box, and then click OK.

    For example, if you want to use the -fullscreen command-line command, type the following text in the Target box: "drive:\Program Files\Connectix\Connectix Virtual PC\Virtual PC.exe" -pc "YourVirtualMachineName" -launch -fullscreen
