Disable Host+C "Scale Mode" shortcut

Postby zantoro » 7. Feb 2012, 09:38

I would like to disable the Host+C shortcut.
whenever I hit it my guest machine goes crazy and stops working.
Given that I only use the full screen mode, I'd rather simply disable the Host+C shortcut, than look for a solution to fix the "Scale Mode" problem (especially since I hit this combination only when mixing up Copy and paste shortcuts between windows and mac).

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/Input/MachineShortcuts "ScaleMode=None"

This should work with VBox 4.1.8 and this will be documented as of the next maintenenace release.

Thanks for this tip. My Mac host couldn't handle the accidental Host+C at all - display refresh just went away.
