Installed Filesystem

Installation creates a holding area for virtual machines:

  1. C:\Users\Public\Documents\Shared Virtual Machines

VM Settings

Network Adapter

Custom: Specific virtual network

By examining the output of netstat -r on a Windows 10 host, it is possible to see the names of VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapters, and, in the Virtual Machine Settings, two adapter names can be found with parenthetical notes. This seems to allow for some conclusions to be drawn:

VMnet1 (Host-only) 
Equivalent to Host-only: A private network shared with the host.
VMnet8 (NAT) 
Equivalent to NAT: Used to share the host's IP address.
