How do I put a line at the end of .vmx file?

[Sorry for n00b question but my vmware player keeps auto-repeating characters without a command to do so and I am lost as to how to put a line at the end of vmx file, I failed at my first two attempts, please help!!

Here is instructions from vmware....


Repeated characters when typing in remote console
Details
When typing into a remote console, you see unintended repeated keystrokes.
Solution

If you are using a wide-area or low-bandwidth connection, the time delay over the network may be long enough to cause the virtual machine to start auto-repeat.

To reduce these effects, increase the time threshold necessary for auto-repeat in the remote console.

    Power off the virtual machine.

    keyboard.typematicMinDelay = "2000000"

The VMX file is a text file so just use your favorite text editor - notepad for example -
