Mac VM Ware Keyboard Trick

VMWare Fusion Windows on Mac

I run VM Ware on my mac, this allows me to launch my Windows 7 partition without needing to reboot. This is great when dealing with the dreaded Internet Explorer.

However every time I set up the Virtual Machine I have issues where I loose my Keyboard for my mac, and it only works on my Virtual Machine.

There is a simple fix for this;

  1. Click on the Settings (Virtual Machine > Settings) for that virtual machine.
  2. Open USB & Bluetooth settings
  3. Make sure Share Bluetooth Devices with Windows is NOT checked.
  4. Close out settings and restart the virtual machine.
