Mac screenshot commands open Office apps within VMware Fusion

    This kb article suggests  that it should be possible to use the Mac screenshot commands (Shift-Cmd-3 and Shift-Cmd-4) to take a screenshot of a VM while in Fusion.  But, when invoke Shift-Cmd-4 Word opens up in the VM, while Excel opens when I invoke Shift-Cmd-3.

    Is there a solution to this?  Can I change the shortcuts to Word and Excel (or just delete them...I don't need keyboard shortcuts to Office apps)?

    hit ctrl-cmd first to detach the keyboard/mouse from the VM, then use cmd-opt-shift-4 and select the VM window area from MacOS. Then click inside the VM window and continue working.
