    The integrated features or VMTools could cause issues since one of the benefits is it allows you to mouse in and out of the VM window without a key combo. However if you run full screen I can't imagine it causing to much of an issue. We'll see what other VM users chime in with.

    A simple way of exiting a running application in win 8 and returning to the metro screen is hitting the key combination; Ctrl + Esc.
