    One click solution Virtualbox

    Is there a way I can put an icon on my panel so that I can just click once to it and have direct access to my XP virtual machine?

    A quick Google turned up this - http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch0...manage-startvm

    I'd imaging creating a launcher which uses the above command along with your VM name could work?

    I'm not at my machine right now so can't say for sure...
    The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.

    say the name of your machine is XP, then you must place a link to
    Code:
    virtualbox --startvm XP
    on your desktop. I don't know if it works when the name of the vm has spaces or odd characters.
