    I have installed Virtual Box and am running Windows XP on it with no problem ... however, I enabled the full screen mode and accidentally "pinned" the fly up menu at the bottom of the screen and can't get it to go away. The mouse will not go into that area of the menu to let me "unpin" it. It's very aggravating, does anyone know how to disable this?

    I have Win 8 in a virtualbox and I remember having mouse problems. I seem to recall I could run virtualbox and edit the VM without actually launching it to get the mouse back the way I wanted it.

    FYI, I found the answer to my problem ...

    With the VM not in full screen mode, I disabled the Mouse integration, which let me go back to full screen mode and unpin the menu from the bottom of the screen. Once the menu was hidden, I reenabled the Mouse integration and all works fine now.
