Does anyone know which key is the host key of Windows 7 Virtual PC and where I could change it to a different one? Before Windows 7 the host key was changed in the option menu of Virtual PC but the new version is integrated into the explorer so there is no option menu for Virtual PC.

As far as I know, you cannot change it. It is fixed to Ctrl+Alt+Left.

... which works pretty poorly on computers where you change the (host) screen orientation with Ctrl+Alt+Left, Right, Up and Down. –  Christian Davén Dec 5 '11 at 13:46

Windows 7, Default Virtual PC 2007 install. Pound on the Right Alt key all day for great fun, or press CTL-ALT-Left or Right Arrow and escape the window to return to the Host...

I'm using Windows 7 and Virtual PC 2007, the host key for me is the right ALT key. Unfortunatley I don't know were or if its possible to change it.

Right here, Virtual PC -> File -> Options. I use Scroll lock because i never ever used that key for something and i need right alt.

File -> options

I know it's been 2 years :)

Its depends which tool you are using for Virtual Machine. In Oracle VM VirtualBox the Host Key is Right Ctrl Key.
