Combine VirtualBox Manager and VM together on Taskbar

Postby VirtualBox_2019 » 20. Apr 2019, 22:12

I have recently upgraded from the 32 bit version (VirtualBox 5) to the 64 bit version (VirtualBox 6).

In VirtualBox 5, it kept the VirtualBox Manager and VM together. How do I do this for VirtualBox 6 since it keeps them separated.

Thanks

In the 6.0.x series and forward, the VirtualBox Manager and the Virtual Machine Runner, are two different processes for security reasons. If you just need the VM showing, simply quit the Manager.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

Thanks for the explanation and confirmation of there is no switch to make it come together on the taskbar.
