VirtualBox UI manager should let me "save" a VM

Reported by: timeless Owned by:

Host type: Mac OS X


I've created a VM (w7 x64) and run it, if i run it in a window, I can click the close button in the host to get a dialog and choose "save". This saves the vm to disk and lists it as "saved" in the VirtualBox UI.

I should be able to Save a VM directly from the VirtualBox UI, currently I have: New, Settings, Start and Discard.

Save should be available as a button when a VM is running.

I need this because I use "Seamless Mode" which means I can't click on a close button....

I don't agree with your proposal. Such VM operations shouldn't be part of the selector window as we can't duplicate every VM operation between the guest window and the selector window. You can close + save the VM from VBoxManage if you like.
