I use Virtualbox with Windows on Ubuntu host. I keep it on separate workspace (I use Xmonad). Xmonad uses Windows key as modifier. The problem is: when I press it, Windows machine opens start menu. Disabling keyboard autocapture helped a bit, but not completely. So, is there a way to setup Virtualbox in a way, so it will completely ignore specific keys or sequences?
These work for the guest windows in non Virtualbox environments and should control the guest.
In the windows guest can you right click on the desktop and select:-
-> graphic options -> then Hotkeys -> disable.
Disable all Hotkeys except win+l win+u-, reboot required.
I've tested on win 7 [options -> disable, the other says it works on all OS's(it is a Registry hack, normal warnings on reg.)]
Hope one of them works.
Try adding this in your
((0, xK_Super_L), return ())
