Some key combinations are repeated on the host

Postby quizerti » 17. Jan 2019, 01:55

I have noticed that when pressing certain keys in Windows 10 1809 guest, they are also forwarded to the host. For example. if I press the Windows key it opens the Start Menu on the guest and host. Or if I press the Windows key + E to open file explorer, it might instead open on the host and not the guest.

What's your HostKey set as? Maybe the Start key?

I always leave the host key as default - so right Control.
