Drag and drop: This feature allows you to drag and drop files and folders between the host and the guest in both directions.


Hardware-accelerated graphics: This feature allows you to use hardware 3D acceleration (OpenGL and Direct3D) and hardware 2D video acceleration for Windows guests, which can improve the graphics performance of your virtual machines.


Seamless windows: This feature allows you to display windows from your guest operating system on your host desktop as if they were native applications.


Guest properties: This feature allows you to query and modify information about your guest operating system from the host, such as its name, IP address, memory usage, etc.


Guest control file manager: This feature allows you to browse and manage files on your guest operating system from a graphical interface on the host.


Guest control of applications: This feature allows you to execute commands and applications on your guest operating system from the host.
