How to install VMware Fusion – this is short :)

OK so by now you know that Mr I will never have an Apple, has as a result of my new job become the possessor of a MBP. :S

So what was one of the first things I did, apart from changing the password ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s right downloaded and installed VMware Fusion. I thought I would show every body how easy it is to install Fusion on a MBP so here goes.

one go to theVMware download site as shown below

.Download Fusion VMware Site

Click the Download button.


Read the EULA ๐Ÿ˜‰

EULA Agree

Click Yes to agree, or it all stops here ๐Ÿ™‚


I chose the small file as I already have a AV product. once the file has downloaded, ย Double click the file in Finder.


then simply move the VMware Fusion Icon to the Application Folder and waitโ€ฆโ€ฆ..

Yes that is really it. ย Fusion is now installed and you are ready to start running lovely VM’s on your OSx environment.



A few useful keyboard combinations for the Mac

I have recently become the owner of a MBP. it is not something that I would ever have purchased myself. but I have found myself liking it, ย Here are a few of the little tips that I have found useful.


Apple key + Space Bar = ย  Spotlight, ย this allows you to enter the a couple of characters of the application you are looking for and they all appear in a little drop down box,

the Apple Key give similar functionality to that of the Cntl key on a windows machine. So:-

Apple + V is the same as Cntl + V or paste.

Apple ย + X is move

Apple + C is copy

Apple + B is Bold

Apple + A is select all

Apple + Z is revert the last change.

Apple + N is New.

one thing that was annoying me was the lack of a Hash/Pound (#) Key on my UK keyboard, but that is accessed by using Alt + 3
