This table lists the PC key strokes and provides methods to accomplish the corresponding key stroke/function using a Macintosh/Fusion keyboard:
|Macintosh / Fusion
|To send Ctrl+Alt+Del to a virtual machine:
|The Delete key on an Apple keyboard is actually the backspace key to all other operating systems.
To send the PC Delete key to a virtual machine:
|To send the Insert key to a virtual machine:
|To send the Print Screen key to a virtual machine:
|To send the Alt-Gr key to virtual machine:
|Selecting multiple list items
|To use Ctrl+click as you would in a normal Windows environment:
|To send the Num Lock key to a virtual machine:
|To send a Function key (for example, F1 or F3) to a virtual machine:
Note: To make the Macintosh function keys act like regular function keys, and trigger the special functions with Fn+<the function key> instead, go to Apple menu > System Preferences > Keyboard(or Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard), and select Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.
Note: To use F13-F24 in a virtual machine, you must use the steps above to change the default behavior of the function keys.
|By default, this is mapped to Either Command key, but it can also be mapped to Right Command keyor Left Command key according to your choice.
To map the Windows key to any convenient key you choose, navigate to VMware Fusion > Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Key Mappings.
- If Ctrl+click does not work in Windows and sends a right-click instead, see Selecting multiple list items in the table.
