Once you get into fullscreen mode in virt-manager there is no clue about how to exit and go back to windowed mode, what's the "secret" spell to get your desktop back?

You should be able to mouse up to the centre of the very top of the screen which causes a small toolbar to slide down. The toolbar has buttons for exiting fullscreen, and sending key combinations to the guest.

Now that I know where to look I wonder why I didn't notice it before...

It is quite subtle!

Wish I could upvote, but I found this with elinks from a tty2 console as I managed to stuck my X into that, too, and didn't figure that out.

Hi,

found maybe a "workaround" here: http://old.nabble.com/F9-virt-manager%3A-Alt-Gr-key-and-fullscreen--td17719535.html

Don't use virt-manager, but connect vncviewer directly:

vncviewer localhost:5900 -fullscreen

No way to try it out right now, but does that work for you?

Cheers

Oliver
