What is VMware tool?

Or, Why VMware tool is used in VMware Virtualization?

VMware tool is a set of necessary drivers for Virtual Machines which is mandatory to be installed in Guest VMs for fully smooth functionality of the Guest VMs. e.g. Mouse control of windows Guest OS, SVGA etc..

VMware tool enables users to copy and paste texts between guest and host. Without VMware tool few major functionality of Virtual Machines like Guest Shutdown and Restart options can’t function through VMware vSphere client.
