APPLIES TO:

Question

  • I need to change the amount of RAM assigned to my virtual machine. How do I do it?

Answer

  1. Shut down your virtual machine.
  2. Open virtual machine's configuration window > Hardware > CPU & Memory
  3. Set the required amount of RAM by entering a number manually or moving the slider:

    NOTE: We highly recommend to keep the slider within the recommended range. Assigning more RAM than recommended may cause severe performance degradation of both Mac and virtual machine.

  4. Close the configuration window and feel free to start your virtual machine.
