FINALLY !!! Unity mode is working with Windows 10 build 10130 and VMware workstation rel 11.1 latest build.

I was surprised to find running a task under a command prompt allowed the screen to open to full size. That's great. The only downside for me was that the part of the task actually running was always off the bottom of the screen. Yes, it still...
