Because Ctrl+Alt tells Workstation Player to release mouse and keyboard input, hot-key combinations that include Ctrl+Alt are not passed to the guest operating system. You must use the Space key if the key combination includes Ctrl+Alt.


  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+spacebar.
  2. Release the spacebar without releasing Ctrl and Alt.
  3. Press the third key of the key combination to send to the guest operating system.
