    Colin's reply explained it well, have nothing to add to it.

    Here's a screenshot from my three display system, Windows 10 PRO Build 16188 host, running 4 virtual machines simultaneously, each in its own virtual machine session window. On left display XP and 7, Windows 8.1 running in full screen mode on middle display, and Windows 10 VM on main display at right:

    A new video on the subject I saw today at channel9:
    Introduction to Microsoft Hyper-V

    by Eric Mills, ChrisCaldwell, CrC

    Hyper-V is Microsoft's enterprise-class hypervisor included in Windows Server 2016 Essentials, Standard and Datacenter. Join us in this introductory video to learn how to install Hyper-V, create a virtual machine, assign resources, and how to manage it.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before but after 1709 you don't need to create a virtual switch any more - a default switch like this is created automatically and will use whatever network you are connected to. Not sure why the Remove button isn't greyed out - you can't delete it.

    I do use a laptop with a dock and it works very well as you don't have to swap adapter.

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> get-vmswitch
    Name                    SwitchType NetAdapterInterfaceDescription
    ----                    ---------- ------------------------------

    Details about the Default Switch

    The switch named “Default Switch” or “Layered_ICS”, allows virtual machines to share the host’s network connection. Without getting too deep into networking (saving that for a different post), this switch has a few unique attributes compared to other Hyper-V switches:
    • Virtual machines connected to it will have access to the host’s network whether you’re connected to WIFI, a dock, or Ethernet.
    • It’s available as soon as you enable Hyper-V – you won’t lose internet setting it up.
    • You can’t delete it.
    • It has the same name and device ID (GUID c08cb7b8-9b3c-408e-8e30-5e16a3aeb444) on all Windows 10 hosts so virtual machines on recent builds can assume the same switch is present on all Windows 10 Hyper-V host.

    I’m really excited by the work we are doing in this area. These improvements make Hyper-V a better tool for people running virtual machines on a laptop. They don’t, however, replace existing Hyper-V tools. If you need to define specific virtual machine settings, New-VM or the new virtual machine wizard are the right tools. For people with custom networks or complicated virtual network needs, continue using Virtual Switch Manager.

    Hmmmm.... Interesting
    But I like my Virtual switch as it is.
    I pay for 25/5 but with the virtual switch now, I get
    ↓ 27,5 Mbit/s↑ 5,6 Mbit/s, somehow.

    What a fantastic tutorial this is! --so very well thought out and carefully written (including punctuation, which, in some threads, the lack thereof, leaves me completely uncomprehending.)

    I got this up and running last week with XP pro as a virtual machine. I had forgotten about Part 5, but went back and easily corrected my mistake. Also invaluable, were some of the posts in the thread --helped me sort out a number of issues.

    My goal was to be able to use Office 97 on the XP virtual machine since it no longer works on W10 after the latest update. And I got that up and running.

    Unfortunately, although usable, the display issues leave me wanting. I tried all the various settings for view size, zoom, changing resolution size on the host, etc.

    Then I went to your tutorial on RDP --again, excellent! Thanks to you, I got that up and running.

    Of course, there are similar display issues using RDP. And, again, I tried all the combinations of settings that that program offers. It's usable, but I'd like something a little more elegant for my purposes. I'm not complaining --as someone has said, it's free. And what I've learned in the process is exciting to me.

    I'm now in the process of looking into VMware Workstation. From my reading, that one looks like it handles the display quite well. I'll follow Shawn's tutorial.

    I just wanted to thank you for sharing your knowledge. I know it's a lot of work and can be painstaking.

    Always good to get feedback, especially nice when it's positive. Thanks Paul!
