Swap Windows and Alt Keys in VMWare Fusion

In the past few days, I have used VMWare Fusion to run Windows XP on my MacBook and I am pretty happy with it. However, as soon as I am in windows, I have trouble getting used to the Control – Alt – Windows key order. For those who do not know, the Windows keyboard’s order is Control – Windows – Alt. Fortunately, my research took me to a VMWare’s forum article where I found just what the doctor order.

Essentially, the solution calls for creating a file called config off ~/Library/Preferences/VMWare Fusion/ and add the following line:

mks.keyboard.swapAlt = TRUE
