Setup: I have VirtualBox running, my guest OS is Windows 7. I also have multiple Ubuntu workspaces which I navigate with Ctrl+Alt+Arrow keys.
The problem is that when the virtual machine window gets focus, it traps the Ctrl+Alt keys (actually it traps all keys, which is technically correct behavior), but then those keys no longer perform my host OS workspace switching.
I'd like the workspace switch shortcut key to continue working even if my VM is focused. I suppose I wouldn't mind if both OSes receive the Ctrl+Alt+Arrow and process them (though my VM doesn't use these shortcut keys.)
My current workaround is to click outside (unfocus) the VM, but I don't want to have to do this.
There may be no solution to this, but I thought I'd ask.
