How to Copy and Paste Between a VirtualBox Host Machine and a Guest Machine
If you use VirtualBox to run different operating systems on your computer, you may be wondering how to copy text from your host machine into the guest machine and vice versa. You may have thought that VirtualBox Guest Additions provides this feature, but it doesnít.
VirtualBox Guest Additions provides several useful features, such as shared folders and improved performance, and we recommend installing the Guest Additions. However, to enable copying text between the host machine and guest machine, you must change a setting in VirtualBox for the virtual machine.
To enable copying text between the host and guest machines, first make sure the virtual machine for which you want to enable the setting is powered off. Then, select the virtual machine in the list in the VirtualBox Manager (if itís not already selected) and click Settings on the toolbar.
