VMWare Fusion Shortcut for Getting out of Full Screen Mode

March 18th, 2013 No Comments »

I recently upgraded my retina to OS X 10/8.3 and Fusion 5.0.3.  Though lots of issues installing bootcamp and windows 8, I did pick up a very handy short cut. 

Control-Command-F

Toggles between full screen mode and single screen mode.  The reason I need it is because the normal vmware fusion menu is gone from my vmware session in full screen mode.

The other reason I need it is because snagit does not work with screen captures when in dual screen mode. Now, it’s easy to pop back and forth between dual screen mode and single window mode, do my snagit (as above), then go back again.
