5.1.6 messed them up, shortkeys, session information window

Reported by: Nikc Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 5.1.6
Keywords: shortkeys, session, information, host Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


Myself is not familiarized with VB's internal architecture, so hard to select proper "component".

5.1.6 is the first 5.1 version used with this config. Host OS X 10.9.5 Guests Ubuntu 64Bits Desktop 16.04 LTS In prior of this - I guess - 5.0.26 was in use without any probs. Build 110634 was downloaded and installed few hours ago and still in use this minute. V.M.s run in full-screen mode.

(A) Host key combination without effect, short-keys practically not working, e.g. full-screen shortkey, pause V.M. short key, pop-up menu while in full-screen shortkey Occasionally host's shortkey for making screenshots on host which doesn't have anything in common with VB nor with its virtual machines is not working.

(B) While in full-screen mode opening the Session Information window/dialog works quite differently as it was before upgrade to 5.1. This dialog gets maximized to full-screen, some other white-background window/dialog seems to be opening in its background, closing Session Information dialog leaves some strange screen (grey background) with no function - strange host's workspaces.

May I suggest something? It's usually better and faster, if problems like this one (configuration) get first addressed in the forums ( More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of.

So, if you can, please open a new thread in the VirtualBox on Mac OS X Hosts section (
