This 2 keys are too close to each other and can be hit by mistake.

CTRL + F - fullscreen CTRL + R - reset

I sometimes by mistake hit R instead of F and machine reboots but I wanted to switch fullscreen mode. It woould be good that at least I got some kind of confirmation dialog for reset function.

That's quite normal, because you chose to hide the reset warning when it was first presented to you. Reset the warnings in the help menu if you want to get it back.

I suggest to disable CTRL + R by default. I am using mac and when I was using Windows inside Virtual box, I accidentally pressed CMD + R to reload browser page (how I do it in Safari browser) :-) but reset the virtual machine. That's annoying. There shouldn't be shortcuts for destructive actions.

Did you bother to read before reopening? Change the host key if you don't like it.
