In this article, we will run Ubuntu 19.10 on a new virtual machine using VM Workstation 15 virtualization program on Windows 10 operating system.
How to Install Ubuntu with VMware Workstation
VMware Workstation is the most popular Hypervisor Type 2 virtualization program developed by VMware. With this software, you can run multiple operating systems on your PC virtually. For example, installing Ubuntu on a virtual machine without installing Dual-Boot may be useful for the first trial.
The latest version of Ubuntu, 19.10, was released on October 17, 2019, under the code name Eoan Ermine. The most prominent feature of this release is that it now includes NVIDIA drivers in ISO image files.

How to Install VMware Tools
After installing the Linux operating system on the virtual machine, you must install VMware Tools to share files between the host PC and the VM or configure the screen resolution to full screen.
VM Tools for Ubuntu version 19.10 installs automatically. However, for older versions 18.04, 18.10, 19.04, you need to do this manually.
Now, to install VM Tools on Ubuntu 18.10, follow the steps below.
Click the VM / Install VMware Tools button to start the installation.
Once the image file is mounted on the system, drag and drop the .tar.gz file to the desktop.
After extracting the VMwareTools.tar.gz archive file to the folder, start Terminal here.
To switch to root access on the terminal, execute sudo su, and then execute ./vmware-install.pl to install VMware Tools.
After installing VMware Tools, reboot your system, and click View / Fit Guest Now to change the resolution of the virtual machine automatically.
You can view the full-screen resolution of the Ubuntu virtual machine from the image below.
NOTE: In addition to the above steps, you can also execute apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop y in the terminal to install VMware Tools.
