"Definitely works for VM Player: Ctrl+Alt+the period on the number pad.
If you have a laptop without seperate number pad (as I do) then press Ctrl+Alt+Fn then >

The host will take the focus as though it did not work, but after you click cancel you go back to the VNC session and it now displays the login prompt."

"I'm RDPed into a VMWare Essentials host server and was having issues with Ctrl+Alt+Insert because the cursor was released from the console.

If you're having this issue just click/focus back in the console and hit Ctrl+Alt+Insertagain.

If that doesn't work try Ctrl + Alt + End and you should be able to get to the logon screen. This happened to me on a different VM."

"If you are on a Macbook Pro, there is no Ins key or Print Screen. Instead: Fn+Control+Alt+Delete

Does the trick to open up the login screen."

Mind notebooks/keyboards with the Fn function for keys. Push it together with Ctrl+Alt+PR_SCREEN.
