Start/stop headless VM from VirtualBox GUI

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I have only just started using virtual box so sorry if this is a case of RTFM but I can't find a way of starting a VM in headless mode from the VirtualBox GUI. It always wants to create a window that shows the VM's screen but I only want to access that VM using RDP.

I know you can start the VM from the command line using VBoxHeadless because that's what I do at the moment but it would be nice if the VirtualBox GUI gave you an option to start a VM in headless mode rather than always having a window.

Is it possible to have an option that forces the VM to run headless?

This is currently not possible. But you can start a VM headless from VBoxManage.
