Previously I showed you how to set up a Virtual Machine on Windows 8 using Hyper-V. If you want to enhance the experience and fluidity of the VM, install Integration Services.
According to Microsoft:
The Integration Services software package improves integration between the virtualization server and the virtual machine.
Just think of them as Guest Additions in VirtualBox or VMware Tools. It provides a better experience. For instance, without them, the VM will capture your mouse and you have to hit Ctrl+Alt+Right Arrow to release it. With Integration Services installed, the mouse isn’t captured in a way you need a key combo to release it.
To install them on your VM, go to Actions >> Insert Integration Services Setup Disk.
Next, AutoPlay comes up in your client VM. Click Install Hyper-V Integration Services.
Agree to UAC if it’s enabled.
Then the Integration Services are installed.
A reboot is required to complete the install.
