    Hello, I have VMware Fusion 5 running on my rMBP. Could you please let me know how to regain keyboard control under Mac OS while Fusion is running? Thanks.

    Prior to Fusion 5, this combination worked. However, it does not work anymore with the latest version.

    I just found something interesting.

    Control+Command works when I use the keyboard on my rMBP. However, the combination does not work when I use the Apple Wireless Keyboard.

    Anybody knows that is going on?

    That may be because you haven't told Fusion to use the paired Bluetooth devices, from the Devices menu. Once you do that, all should be well again. ;)

    If you install VMWare tools, this key command shouldn't be necessary- the mouse should move freely from VMWare to your actual OS.
