Oh no. I don't know how to let my mouse free from the VM!

Postby reihan7 » 16. Jun 2021, 23:31

Distro: Linux (latest) Debian 64-bit

I've tried host+f.
I'm posting this from the VM.
I have to go through the process of making an Oracle account
I HOPE MY PERSONAL INFO ISN'T SHOWN

Any way to free my mouse? Thanks!
Feel free to ask stuff if my explanation isn't elaborate enough. I only use VM because I wanna migrate to Debian.

I found a solution. Just switch to a different window from the main host.
I don't know if there's a shortcut for it, though. If there is one that is 200 times more simple, please reply. Big thanks!

Install the Guest Additions and you don't need to worry about this matter at all - mouse integration is automated.

Otherwise, the host key on its own is how you uncapture the mouse. Host key is the right ctrl key unless you changed the config.
