Rage inducing quit fix for VMware Fusion and Cmd-Q

Sick of hitting cmd-q to quit an app in a VM but then shutting down VMware Fusion and 6 VMs that get suspended and that you need to restart and ARGHH?

Who isn’t?

Just go in Fusion’s preference menu and do this.

CMD_Q
It’ll work as long as the mouse focus is in a VM. If you hit cmd-q while Fusion has focus but no VM does, you will still end up quitting Fusion.

This should still resolve 90% of my ARGH-quits.

    Awesome. I was doing this about twice a day in VMware fusion. Muscle memory for quitting an app is CMD-Q and it was so annoying seeing “Shutting Down”. Thanks!

    This is incredibly useful! To fix the other 10% go to Preferences and check the box next to “Confirm before closing”
