Hi i just switched to virtualbox to vmware after having too many issue with 3d rendering option. Also make sure to check out my other posts on virtualbox like how to.
The auto capture keyboard toggle option.
Auto capture keyboard virtualbox. But there is an option that i cant find in vmware. To do this select the auto capture keyboard check box. On the input screen you can also choose to automatically capture the keyboard when you open a virtual machine.
Virtualbox captures the keyboard unwantedly. Update i am sorry to say but there seems to be something wrong in vid which resulted in this many dislikes so dont waste time and search in google to sol. I unchecked auto capture keyboard in file preferences input.
You have auto capture keyboard option turned on this will cause the virtual machine to automatically capture the keyboard every time the vm window is activated and make it unavailable to other application running and they say if i don t want to capture i can use right ctrl key. This means all keystrokes are directed to the virtual machine until you press the host key to return control of the mouse and keyboard to the host machine. But whenever i press alt tab to change focus from virtualbox to another program and press alt tab again to switch the focus back to virtualbox virtualbox captures the keyboard automatically.
I have to consciously realise that it is virtualbox that i alt tabbed to and uncapture the keyboard before i can alt tab away from it again. Only ever capture the keyboard when the user explicitly presses the keyboard capture key. If you dont know what its about when you set this off the virtualbox window act like a normal window.
Never capture the keyboard automatically.
