View settings of a running VM

Description

It would be useful to be able to view the Settings dialog for running VMs. I appreciate that editing settings on the fly may be tricky, but viewing alone would be useful too.

Sometimes when I run into an issue I need to check the settings to see if I misconfigured something, and if I find that I did then I can decide to shut down the VM. Currently I must shut down the VM first, and quite often find that the settings were actually configured correctly. This is unproductive, and can take a while for some VMs. Pausing alone is not enough, it must be powered off at the moment, othewise Settings is grayed out.

I searched for existing tickets for this since I expected this to be a common request, but didn't find anything. Sorry if this is a dupe.
