    If you enable the keyboard within the Linux Sandbox VM, how do you switch back to using the Windows keyboard? I’m using Windows 7.

    Hi Greg,

    CTRL + ALT will leave control of your VM in VMWare.
    To go back to it, you just click inside the terminal.

    You can find more about VMWare on their website, or in the Help of VMWare Workstation or Player.

    If my memory serves me correct from last evening…it looks it’s CLT-ALT to switch back to Windows. And then (I believe) ALT-F4 to go back to the Linux VM.
