Short stoy: AltGr (HostKey) + C

will quit “seamless (no menues) mode”

really like the cross-os capabilties of virtualbox (possible to move vms between GNU Linux and Windows servers) and think it has great potential,

what is not so great is

in older versions of Virtualbox (5.1) try this option in the virtual box options:

release mouse?

also: CTRL-Right / AltGr / (US: ALT key on the right side of SPACE) will release mouse/input focus of VM window.

(hit both and your mouse cursor should be freed from tyranny)
