You can change key combinations for hot-key sequences in
Workstation Pro and the language for the keyboard that VNC clients use. You can also configure platform-specific keyboard features for Windows and Linux host systems.
Use the Enhanced Virtual Keyboard Feature in a Virtual Machine The enhanced virtual keyboard feature provides better handling of international keyboards and keyboards that have extra keys. This feature is available only on Windows host systems.
Change Hot-Key Combinations for Common Operations You can change the hot-key combinations that you use to perform common virtual machine operations.
Change Hot-Key Combinations for Unity Mode You can change the hot-key combination that you use to access the Start and Applications menus in Unity mode.
Configure Keyboard Mapping for a Remote X Server Although the keyboard works correctly with a local X server, it might not work correctly when you run the same virtual machine with a remote X server.
Change How a Specific Key Is Mapped If some keys on the keyboard do not work correctly in a virtual machine, you can set a property that makes a modification to the map. To change how a specific key is mapped, you add the appropriate property to the virtual machine configuration ( .vmx) file or to ~/.vmware/config.
Configure How Keysyms Are Mapped When key code mapping cannot be used or is disabled, Workstation Pro maps keysyms to v-scan codes. If a language-specific keyboard does not appear to be supported by Workstation Pro, you might need to set a property that tells Workstation Pro which keysym table to use.
V-Scan Code Table You specify v-scan codes when you change how keys or keysyms are mapped.
