Because I use virtualbox to run windows xp.

Normally when I press window key+e it can show file browser on xp, but now my virtualbox's xp couldn't capture window key.

How to fix it?

Thank you~

Try following: Install "compizconfig-settings-manager". Run it. In "Ubuntu Unity Plugin" set "Key to Show the Launcher" to something else than "Super".

"compizconfig-settings-manager" is the name of package to install. Binary to run is "ccsm". – korjjj Oct 17 '11 at 14:18
