When Ctrl-Click in a Windows VMware Fusion VM does right-click, when you thought you turned that off

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/10

A while ago, I was surprised that in a Windows VM running under VMware Fusion, the Ctrl-Click performed a right click, despite me having changed the configuration:

I was wrong, as I had forgotten I assigned the “Windows 8 Profile” tot hat VM (as it was running Windows 8.1), which had the Secondary Button still mapped to the Control+Primary Button:

vmware Fusion/Workstation/ – How can you boot from CD? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/10

Basically the boot delay during startup is so short that usually you cannot even choose the boot device.

Solution: edit the .vmx file, then change this value:

bios.bootDelay = "15000"

Mac OS X beyond Yosemite: Ctrl-Click to add/remove an item from a selection fails in Windows on VMware Fusion

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/03

Somewhere after Yosemite, braindead Mac OS X forcibly maps “Ctrl+Click” to right-click. In past versions, you could disable but those days have gone.

This means that inside Windows on VMware Fusion, you cannot add/remove items to/from a selection any more (for instance in the Windows Explorer).

Various workarounds turned up in my Google Search, but only this one works:

Holding down CTRL + OPTION together and LEFT CLICKING will do this.
