Access directly to the console of a virtual machine in three easy steps.

1. Create shortcut to VM Connect

Open %programfiles%\Hyper-V and do a right-click drag and drop to your desktop from vmconnect.exe to “Create Shortcut Here”.


2. (optional) rename the shortcut to something you like and put it somewhere convenient to use often.


3. Open the shortcut, type the name of your host, select your VM.  Connect.


  • change your shortcut to "c:\program files\hyper-v\vmconnect.exe" VMSERVER VMNAME and you wont have to enter it each time
