Selecting all screen contents 9 Years, 9 Months ago  
Is there a way to select all screen contents (similar to the Windows Crtl-A) via a keyboard shortcut? Once selected, I can CTRL-Ins to copy it to the clipboard for use by another application. Thanks in advance!

This cannot be done with a keyboard shortcut, as most combinations of control, alt, and letter keys must be sent to the host. You *can* however do it with mouse clicks:

Double-click = select word
trible-click = select line
quad-click = select entire screen

Now that I say that, and I'm checking to make sure it works... The quad-click seems to have trouble. It *does* select the text, but it does not properly highlight it on the screen to indicate it has done so. I'll look into this more.
