Mouse cursor does not automatically get captured when moving over virtual machine window.
One of the probable reasons for this problem is that the Smart Mouse option is set to "Optimize for games". It is the very feature that determines, whether mouse pointer is hovering over Virtual Machine window and automatically switches, if necessary, the area of its operation.
- Click on Virtual Machine in Mac menu bar > Configure... > Hardware > Keyboard and Mouse
- Set Smart Mouse option to "Auto-detect for games" or "Don't optimize for games"
If the issue persists then follow the below mentioned steps.
