I am running Ubuntu 14.10 as my host system. Then I have Virtualbox with Windows 8.1 as guest OS. I am using workspaces in Ubuntu and I want to run Virtualbox in fullscreen in one workspace and at the same time have the opportunity to use CtrlAltarrow to switch workspace (and in this case switch OS).

If I uncheck the "Catch keyboard auto" setting in settings, then I get this to work but then the AltTab does not work anymore inside Windows.

So, my question is: Is there a way to, when in fullscreen Windows-guest-mode use both:

  • AltCtrlarrow in host Ubuntu
  • AltTab in guest Windows
