VirtualBox

Ticket #10643 (new defect)

Opened 23 months ago

HOST key (Mac OS X right-CMD) still triggers (the Windows menu) on the guest system (Windows XP)

Reported by: porg Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.1.16 Keywords:

Host type: Mac OS X

Description

This is my general preference:

Preferences > Input > Host-Key : RightCMD

In all 4 variations I tried, the app switching command on the host system Mac OS X (CMD-Tab) worked, but the CMD key seems to be not properly captured, as the Windows Menu still got triggered as an unwanted side effect.

Possible a problem of left/right CMD key redundancy? Probably related: #6289

Variations

Preferences > Input > Auto-capture keyboard OFF

  1. Focus on Windows Notepad
  2. LeftCMD-Tab to Finder
  3. Windows menu gets triggered
  1. Focus on Windows Notepad
  2. RightCMD (=HOST-key)
  3. LeftCMD-Tab to Finder
  4. Windows menu gets triggered

Preferences > Input > Auto-capture keyboard ON

  1. Focus on Windows Notepad
  2. LeftCMD-Tab to Finder. Does not bring up the Mac App Switcher, but removes focus from Windows Notepad to something else from Windows (not clear to me what).
