Use the ALT key in a VirtualBox Windows VM

In Ubuntu your ALT key is locked when you're working in VirtualBox. There are two workarounds for this:

  • Press the Windows key in addition to the ALT key
  • Run the attached registry file and restart Windows. Your left Windows key is now the ALT key.
  • If you'd like to map keys differently, here are further instructions Archive

Join our free training event and learn to fix any flaky test suite, even in large legacy applications.
