    I put VPC into full-screen mode. Now I cannot get out of full screen mode.
    It either does full-screen or minimizes the window. Also, when in
    full-screen mode, I'm unable to send a Ctrl-Alt-Del to enter username and
    password. How do I get VPC out of full-screen mode (back to windowed mode)?
    I'm using VPC on a system with dual LCDs.

    HOST Key + ENTER toggles between full screen and windowed mode (HOST key
    = right ALT by default)
    Full screen or windowed mode, it really doesn't matter, CTRL+ALT+DEL is
    always going to be captured by the host. Use HOST Key + DEL. This is
    covered in the product help.

    Hostkey+enter. By default, this means right-alt+enter.
