Getting Out of Linux Back to Windows

When you want to move between the virtual machine and your native Windows operating system, just press the Control and Alt keys. This key pair signals to the virtual machine (i.e., the guest operating system) that you want to move the focus to the native machine.

When you want to direct input to the virtual machine, just press Control and G.

We now want to download and install some Linux software, so how to do this? You can download in Windows and use WinSCP or ftp to transfer the file into Linux.

My earlier article (http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1218202) described in detail the steps required in getting WinSCP running, so I'll use a different approach this time with a Linux desktop GUI.
