Hi Michal,

Thanks for fixing the product information on the bug-report.

I see that single-click is used to select a VM to show details on the right
at the moment, so I understand your reluctance to change the default
behavior. That said, I think having users look for the console icon in the
right pane may generate a lot of questions.

Here are some suggestions for you to consider:

1) What about adding an icon (somewhat separated to reduce the likelihood
of mis-taps) to the bottom row of icons where Run/Shutdown/Suspend are?
This is not ideal, but if we put it all the way on the left where the "Run"
button is, the danger is minimal.

2) What do you think about changing the "Run" icon to an "Attach to
console" icon once the machine is up instead of graying it out?

3) Another possibility is dedicating one corner of the entire icon (e.g.
top right) for the purpose. This way, users can still single-click/tap near
the middle to see details and use the top right to get console.vv.

On a device with a small screen and touch interface, ideally one should be
able to easily tap a (relatively) big icon for any functionality.
Therefore, apart from these suggestions, I think that making all existing
icons a bit bigger would make it easier for a users to tap on a mobile
device with a small screen. What do you think?

Hopefully one or more of these ideas will work for you!

The conscious mind has only one thread of execution.
