Using the mouse and keyboard in a virtual machine
You use the mouse and keyboard to control a virtual machine much as you would a physical computer.
The remote console will act as an open web tab; allowing the user to access as well as click away from the VM seamlessly.
Keyboard Shortcuts within VM
In general, the keyboard works the same for a virtual machine as it does for a physical computer. Although, some keyboard short cuts such as CTRL+ALT+DELETE do not work within a virtual machine because of the interaction between the host operating system and the guest operating system.
Here is a list of VM actions that can be done using keyboard shortcuts:
- Power On (CTRL+ALT+B)
- Power Off (CTRL+ALT+E)
- CTRL+ALT+DEL Alternative (CTRL+ALT+INSERT) (or Click "Send Ctl+Alt+Delete" button in top right of Remote Console tab)
- Full Screen Mode (CTRL+ALT+ENTER) (or Click "View Fullscreen" button in top right of Remote Console tab)
- Connecting to vLab
- vLab Support
