Ticket #979 (closed enhancement: fixed)
host key combinations would be very convenient
|Reported by:||forest||Owned by:|
I often work with my right hand on the mouse and my left on the "asdf" keys, so common key combinations (like control-c, alt-mouse-click, etc.) are immediately accessible. Unfortunately, VirtualBox supports only a single key as the "host key", which means that choosing any key within reach of my left hand is pretty much out of the question, because they all conflict with common operations. This leaves me stuck with a host key on the right side of the keyboard, which forces me to move a hand from its home position to reach the key, and then move it back again whenever I need the host key. That's pretty irritating.
QEMU and VMware both solve this problem nicely by using a combination of keys (control+alt) as their "host key". I wish I could make VirtualBox do the same.
