http://askubuntu.com – I use a VirtualBox Windows 7 guest in seamless mode on an Ubuntu 12.04 linux host running Gnome 3. Under normal operation when VirtualBox is not running, pressing the Windows Key on the keyboard launches the Gnome activity panel. When the Windows guest is running and is in the foreground, pressing the Windows Key opens the Windows menu inside the guest. Is there anyway to configure it so that the Windows Key will be ignored by the guest, and passed through to the host? (HowTos)
