move cursor from virtual pc window to desktop

I am using Virtual PC.  When I try to move the cursor from virtual pc window to desktop, it won't go beyond that window.  This is NOT what the Microsoft demo showed.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you need to press the right ALT button to release the cursor

OK, that moves the cursor to the desktop.  But that won't allow me to drag and drop documents.  Also, if I move outside of the Virtual PC window, I lose whatever was in memory (as in doing a cut and paste from  Virtual PC to a desktop document).

Have you enabled the virtual machine additions?
I think it is in guest menu, actions.... but it's been a while since I've looked myself

That took care of everything.  It is such a simple solution.  I wonder why Microsoft doesn't just make this part of the normal VC install.
