I never really messed with the VirtualBox Seamless Mode until just now. It is WAY cool!

For this to work well there are a couple of things that you should do within the virtual machine.
  • Set the virtual machine Task Bar to be at the top of the screen.
  • Attach your virtual machine Recycle Bin to the virtual Machine Task Bar or Pin to Start.
  • Attach all the apps you use in the virtual machine to the virtual machine Task Bar or run everything from the virtual machine Start Menu.
  • This is proven in Windows XP and Windows 7 virtual machines. It does not seem to work with Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 virtual machines.

Now go to View and select Seamless Mode. This can also be done using the Hot Key combination of Host-L. Host is the right CTRL key unless changed.

Here is the result. Click the image for a larger view. Use the browser back button to return to here.

Just for grins here is a Windows 7 virtual machine in Seamless Mode. In this case I moved the VirtualBox Menu to the top to reside with the Windows 7 virtual machine Task Bar. I have since done the same with the Windows XP virtual machine. In both cases the menu 'hides' if not active. Could also set the virtual machine Task Bars to hide but I'd probably forget they were open... :mrgreen:
