I'm currently developing software on a linux virtual machine that runs inside VMWare Workstation Player 14, which in turn runs on a Windows 10 host. My preferred setup is to have the VM in fullscreen mode on one monitor and other host applications (like chrome) on the other monitors.
Switching from the VM to other host applications therefore requires me to first exit the VMWare fullscreen mode (default Ctrl+Alt) and then Alt+Tab to the desired window. That's something I can live with. What's more annoying is that after using Alt+Tab to switch back to the VM, the input is not propagated to the guest, so I have to click somewhere within the window using the mouse. Is there any setting or keyboard shortcut to achieve the same without using the mouse?
