This will cause the Virtual Machine to capture the host mouse pointer (only if the mouse pointer integration is not now supported by the guest OS) and the keyboard, which will make them unavailable to other applications running on your host machine.
You can press the host key at any time to recapture the keyboard and mouse (if it is captured) and return them to normal operation. The now assigned host key is shown on the status bar at the bottom of the Virtual Machine window, next to the icon.
