Description

Versión 6.1.34 r150636 (Qt5.12.8) host: Ubuntu Mate 20.04.4 x64 vm: Ubuntu Mate 22.04 x64

VirtualBox window doesn't move or resize. this is an old bug, which was fixed by checking the box "Machine Windows: Raise Windows Under Mouse"

Currently this option, despite the fact that it still solves the problem, does so partially, that is, it works intermittently

Hi mrvst,

Would it be possible if you attach / share host screen recording when you cannot move VM window? It is basically up to host's Window Manager to handle application windows movement and is not expected to have something to do with VBox itself. Also, VBox.log can help to understand this issue better.

Hi mrvst,

Thank you for the log and screen capture. After this issue happened, did guest react on mouse clicks (e.g, were you able to open a context menu by right-click on Windows desktop)? Did host react on mouse clicks?

Yes. Operation inside the guest (VM) is normal. But, at the guest window (click on the right mouse button), after several tries, the menu appears and I can select "move" and it moves the guest window everywhere. However after that it doesn't allow resizing.

Could you please uncheck "Auto Capture Keyboard" checkbox (under global preferences, input page) and let us know if that helps? Thanks
