[SOLVED] CentOS 6.2, How to exit Fullscreen from Virtual Machine?
Posted by gbohn on 2012/2/20 21:06:11
I've been tearing my hair out trying to figure out how to toggle out of a full-screen session of a Virtual machine launched with the Virtual Machine manager (back to the Windowed Console)... I know can leave full-screen mode by shutting down the Guest. But, I'm assuming that there's a way to toggle back and forth between full-screen and the console window.
I set up a CentOS 6.2 64-Bit system, and then created a Windows -7 (64-Bit) guest Virtual machine using the 'Virtual Machine Manager' GUI. I left the default display type as 'VNC'. I believe I am using the KVM feature of qemu-kvm in case that's relevant.
At any rate I can start the Virtual machine in the 'Virtual Manager Console' (starting at the 'Virtual Machine Manager' panel). I see the Virtual machine running in the console window, and can use the panel to switch between the 'Console' and 'Details' view without a problem.
Clicking on the consoles 'full-screen' icon switches the display to a full-screen, but now I don't know how to get back to the Windowed view.
Is this a one-way switch, or should I be able to switch back to a windowed view? If I can switch back (or otherwise bring up the Console controls) what is the technique?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
