Hello everybody,

I wanted to ask if it is possible to set a diffrent key then the ALT + Control combination to jump out of a console window on the ESXi Vsphere Client?

Because for print screen pourpose I sometimes right click something move the mouse where I would click and then want to press ALT+Control to snap out of it and make a print screen with SnagIt but it always closes the right clicked menu... because of ALT....

Any idea how to solve that?

Thanks for your help

Regards,
Yves

There are no options or customizations that can be made to change the shortcut keys in the vSphere Client.

Yes but all the keypresses are re-directed in to the remote system on vm? or not?

Found out a solution. If you use snagit you can use a timer. So you press ctrl+alt go back to the local machine press the caputre button -> within 5 seconds go to the workstation do what you want to to (open the menu etc. place the mouse) now snagit comes up you can select what you want to capture and it works.

and like I said you dont to use alt-control if the vmtools are installed and up to date as that means move the mouse from the console is active in windows again so there is no need to alt-control out of console
