Default Ctrl-Alt-Del broken on MacBookPro

Reported by: socratis Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 5.1.6 Keywords: Ctrl-Alt-Del, MacBookPro
Cc: Guest type: all
Host type: Mac OS X


You cannot send a Host-Del key on a MacBookPro which is translated to Host-fn-Bksp. Further investigation shows that:

  • You cannot send a Host-Bksp either, which means that it is not the fn key that is responsible alone.
  • You cannot set Host-(Function#) key.
  • You cannot set Host-(AnyNumber).
  • You can set Host-\, Host-=, etc.

Thank you for noticing that issue.
I think that's the same problem as #15938, and should be fixed in the nearest maintenance release.
Could you please confirm that the issue is fixed for you within the following test build:
Thanks in advance!
