    Hey everyone. I got a bit of an annoying issue with VMWare 3.1. Every time I launch the program it automatically launches the virtual machine I set up. It is annoying because sometimes I launch it on accident and then I have to wait for the VM to fully power up and then shut it down. I am also thinking it would be annoying in the future once I install a few more OS's on there (I assume it might start the first one on the list automatically which might not be the one I want to use).

    How can I get it to go into the menu of the program and let me pick which VM I want to launch (if any at all)?

    I have looked everywhere in preferences and I did not see any settings for this. Maybe I missed something though. Thanks!

    Bring up the Virtual Machine Library (Window menu) and click on the star (next to the VM which starts up) once.
