When using a VDI or TS/XenApp environment and you don’t want users to access the VMWare tools you need to hide the icon.


Disabling access to VMware Tools in the system tray by setting ShowTray to 0 in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware Tools. This can be done using the GPO preferences or any other Workspace management tool.
