cannot change the Host key

Reported by: Edo777 Owned by:

I installed the new version of Virtual Box on a new machine. I have been trying to set the host key differently from the default RIGHT-CTRL. The new key combination is apparently accepted on OK, but then it is auto-setting back to default RIGHT-CTRL. I am apparently unable to set the key on a different key combination. Is this a bug? thanks edo

Hi Edo.

Could you please test it that way:

  1. Open VBox "Preferences..." / Input page / Virtual Machine tab.
  2. Change the shortcut for "Host Key Combination" in embedded-editor of the shortcut table and (!) press Enter (or Return) key while this shortcut embedded-editor is opened. GUI applying shortcut changes only in that case as this is the default Qt behavior. If you simple press OK button instead your change will be discarded.

If you will confirm that was the reason for your issue we will think if we should change that behavior. Thanks in advance.
