I just got my MacBook Air, max RAM, Harddrive and CPU. I have installed Windows 7 using bootcamp and are also using win7 from my Mac OS.

My question: Is it possible to be in the Windows7 machine, and for example pressing Ctrl-Right Arrow or any other shortcut in Windows and have Mac OS ignore that input ?

Another example is Ctrl-space which I use a lot in Visual Studio.

You can change this is Fusion's global preferences. enter image description here

Alternatively, you can always change Mac OS X shortcuts in System Preferences » Keyboard » Keyboard Shortcuts. – Daniel Beck Feb 7 '11 at 9:12

You can do this. Your virtualization program might have something like an "Exclusive mode" which basically redirects all inputs to the virtual OS and binds the screen borders so that your mouse will not escape the virtual OS.
