You can use the Ctrl+Alt+Delete key sequence to shut down or log off of a guest operating system.

Before you begin

Power on the virtual machine.

Procedure

  • Select the virtual machine and select Virtual Machine > Send Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

    This option is the same as pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete on your keyboard. On Windows hosts, this command might be received by both the host operating system and the virtual machine, even when Workstation Player has control of input.

  • If the command is received by both the host operating system and the virtual machine, press Ctrl+Alt+Ins on the keyboard.

    The command is received solely by the virtual machine and shuts down or logs out of the guest operating system.
