CTRL+ALT+F1 in vmplayer

By default CTRL+ALT leave the vmware machine so it’s not possible to do go to tty1. A workaround is to edit the preferences file (~/.vmware/preferences on linux, preferences.ini somewhere in Document and Settings on Windows) and add this line:

pref.hotkey.shift = "true"</

Even if vmplayer still display CTRL+ALT at the bottom of the window, the new "leave vmplayer" hotkey become CTRL+ALT+SHIFT.
