So after installing Kali on my VM I'm left with the CD icon on desktop (Kali Live CD). How can I actually delete it? Same thing happens when I try to install VMware Tools

Cut/Move options are disabled after RMB


If you cannot find a suitable menu entry on your desktop, do it in a terminal:

  • open a terminal (probably called Terminal)
  • in the terminal, type

    sudo eject

  • close the terminal by typing exit (or controlD)

Further reading:


Right click on the icon and select Eject
