    Execute Linux command from guest OS


    Hello,

    I have linux as my host OS and windows as my guest OS on vmware.
    is there any possible way to execute linux commands from windows the guest OS?
    for example create new files, view files, ssh, check processes running... etc.

    Thank you for the help.

    You can ssh into your virtual machine from Windows.

    If you just need a bash-like shell for your Windows, you can give the PowerShell a try. It's very slow and still not a fantastic shell experience, but much better than the built-in Windows shell.
    But if you need access to your host, try reed9's solution.
