Clipboard sharing allows the guest and host to share clipboard contents. It is supported by the QEMU backend.

macOS 13+ Clipboard sharing is now supported for Linux guests running on the Apple backend. There is still no support for macOS guests.

Enabling Clipboard Sharing

  1. In the virtual machine configuration, make sure that “Clipboard sharing” is enabled for QEMU or Apple backend.
  2. Install the guest tools on Linux or Windows.
  3. Reboot the virtual machine.
