Workstation 12 Pro – possible to disable input grab but allow input to VM?

This post was originally published on this site

Currently we are using ESXI/vSphere v5.5 for work and it seems that the VMs will allow input without “grabbing” the mouse (do not have to use CTRL + ALT to release mouse/keyboard back to host.  However, I have not been able to find a way to do this on Workstation 12 Pro.  I have found ways to disable the grab altogether, but then there is no input into the VM/Guest.


Is there a way that the guest will accept input when the mouse is over that VM window but also not grab the input (preventing the need to use the keyboard shortcut to release control back to host)?
