I'd like to second this and bump it. This is essential, not minor at all. While I DO NOT believe that VBox should minimize to tray (another feature request elsewhere that's had some input - if people want that, there are many applications that can provise this functionality) I do believe that it should be possible to switch back and forth between a full screen guest, and the host system without having to do windowed -> minimize -> restore -> windowed every single time.

Host Key + M seems smart, by the way.

Agreed this is really a feature I am missing. Host Key + M and a _ icon in the full screen toolbar should do it!

heh I use VMWare only for this feature... I want too minimize <-> restore keys and icon

Would this be that hard to add? Is there another way of getting to minimize from a full-screen guest?

I was looking for this feature today... it would be very handy, especially when you have the mini toolbar disabled as I do.... that thing always gets in my way.
