    I have Win * in VMware in my Win7 laptop.

    Question...
    I f I want to keep VMware but uninstall Win 8. Can I do that ?

    Hello t-4-2,

    Yes, you would just right click on the listed virtual machine in WMware Player, and click on Delete VM from Disk.

    Hello Shon John Xander,

    That would delete only the virtual machine that was right clicked on completely. It will not uninstall WMware Player.
