It is a regular problem and everytime I forgot the command. So, this post is for noting it down for future reference.

Case: On Windows 10 host, working with VMware workstation. Linux VM deployed and Vmware tools installed on Linux VM, use following command to mount shared folder ( you can define it in VM settings ) .

sudo vmhgfs-fuse .host:/ /mnt/c/ -o allow_other -o uid=1000

Shared folder will be mounted under /mnt/c directory.
