If you made the mistake of upgrading your virtual copy of Windows under Mac OS X using VMware Fusion (version 8 here), you may find Windows 10Â runsÂ painfully sluggish. The answer? Disable 3D graphics acceleration.
- Shut down the virtual machine.
- Bring up the virtual machine settings (âŒ˜E).
- Select “Display”:
- Deselect (remove the checkboxÂ for)Â “Accelerate 3D Graphics”:
- Close out the settings, and restart the virtual machine.
If you’re like me, you’ll find it far, far more usable.
Having purchased a more modern i7 based Mac I can thankfully say this is no longer necessary.
