I am trying to add some keyboard shortcuts to VMware Fusion 8 but the dialog is kinda wonky:

VMware Fusion 8 keyboard shortcut definition dialog

Here the two dropdowns doesn't drop down, so any key I don't have on my MacBook is impossible to configure. For instance, I was trying to configure Cmd+Right to be the Windows End key, since I'm programming in Visual Studio I want quick keyboard navigation, however, since the dropdown doesn't drop down, it is impossible for me to pick the End key.

So, the configuration file that contains this keyboard profile, does anyone know where on my system this is stored so perhaps I can hack it directly in there?

    Should be in: /Users/$USER/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/preferences Dec 27, 2015 at 12:39
  • Yep, there it was and it contained the keyboard entries as well, if you post that as an answer I'll accept it. Dec 27, 2015 at 12:48
