    Information Hyper-V enables running virtualized computer systems on top of a physical host. These virtualized systems (aka: guests) can be used and managed just as if they were physical computer systems, however they exist in a virtualized and isolated environment.

    You can give a virtual machine access to a computer's local resources, like a removable USB flash drive, when you use Virtual Connection Manager (VMConnect). To make this happen, turn on enhanced session mode on the Hyper-V host, use VMConnect to connect to the virtual machine, and before you connect, choose the local resource that you want to use.

    Enhanced session mode provides the following new capabilities for Virtual Machine Connection sessions:
    • Display Configuration
    • Audio redirection
    • Printer redirection
    • Full clipboard support (improved over limited prior-generation clipboard support)
    • Smart Card support
    • USB Device redirection
    • Drive redirection
    • Redirection for supported Plug and Play devices
    You might want use a computer's local resources to:
    • Troubleshoot a virtual machine without a network connection to the virtual machine.
    • Copy and paste files to and from the virtual machine in the same way you copy and paste using a Remote Desktop Connection (RDP).
    • Sign in to the virtual machine by using a smart card.
    • Print from a virtual machine to a local printer.
    • Test and troubleshoot developer applications that require USB and sound redirection without using RDP.

    This tutorial will show you how to use local drives, devices, and resources on a Hyper-V virtual machine with enhanced session mode in Windows 10.

    Here's How:

    1. Open Hyper-V Manager.

    2. Select the Hyper-V host (ex: "BRINK-DESKTOP") in the left pane, double click/tap on the virtual machine (ex: "Non Insider W10") that you want to connect and use enhanced session mode to use local devices and resources on. (see screenshot below)

    3. Click/tap on the Start button to start the virtual machine (ex: "Non Insider W10"). (see screenshot below)

    Note If you don't see the VMConnect dialog and the virtual machine is currently running without enhanced session, then click/tap on View on the menu bar of the virtual machine, and click/tap on the unchecked Enhanced session to open the VMConnect dialog.

    If you don't see the VMConnect dialog and the virtual machine is currently running with enhanced session (checked), then open an elevated command prompt, type the command below, and press Enter to open a new connection for the virtual machine with the VMConnect dialog. Close the command prompt and the other virtual machine connection without the VMConnect dialog.
    *Arrow vmconnect localhost "VM name" /edit

    NOTE: Substitute VM name in the command above with the actual name (ex: "Non Insider W10") of the virtual machine.

    For example: vmconnect localhost "Non Insider W10" /edit

    5. Check or uncheck the Save my settings for future connections to this virtual machine box for what you want. (see screenshot below)

    Note If you check this box, this virtual machine will always automatically start in enhanced session mode using the VMConnect settings you set in the steps below.

    If you want to uncheck this box later, you can use the second part with the command in the note box under step 4 above to edit the VMConnect settings of this virtual machine.

    Where is the Hyper V Manager, How to I start it ?

    I am trying to setup an XP virtual Machine on Windows 10 Pro.

    I followed the steps in Neil Peterson article of 5/9/2016.

    System Requirements - done - ok

    Install Hyper-V - done - ok

    Create a Virtual Switch - skip

    Create a Virtual Machine

    Create a Virtual Machine with Hyper-V Manager

    These steps walk through how to manually create a virtual machine and deploy an operating system to this virtual machine.


    • In Hyper-V Manager, click Action > New >
      Virtual Machine
      to bring up the New

    Uhhhhhhhhh - this step obviously implies one knows

    1) Where the Hyper-V Manager is

    2) How to start the Hyper-V Manager

    Isn't that odd ?
