Shared folder not coming up on my Kali Linux guest from my Windows 10 Host

Ive been having trouble trying to get my shared folder from my Windows 10 Host to my Kali Linux VM. I have spent time researching on how to do it but the mnt folder in Kali Linux still has no shared folder in it.

If anyone could help I would appreciate it.

  1. Do you use open-vm-tools? The open-vm-tools package for Debian (and presumably Kali) does not mount the directory automatically. You can mount it on boot by adding

    vmhgfs-fuse /mnt/hgfs fuse defaults,allow_other 0 0

    to /etc/fstab

    Then reboot, or call

    sudo mount -a
