How do you send Ctrl+Alt+Delete to windows in VMWare Player

My desktop XP OS gets locked after I leave for x minutes. I have VMPlayer occupying full screen mode. I think the keyboard is redirected to VMWare.

I press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and outer-machine XP is not unlocking.

I think maybe keyboard is going to VMWare, because this seems to only happen when I have VMWare running.

How do I unlock XP? Is there some magic key sequence?

1 Answer 1

Have you tried Ctrl + Alt?

I think F11 also takes it out of fullscreen mode
