Hey guys, been a while.

For productivity things, I am trying to set up a virtual machine. That was rather simple enough, using VirtualBox and have it set up how I want. What Im looking to do is have a separate keyboard and mouse that is only used on the virtual machine. I have no idea what thats called so Im not sure what to look for. I have multiple monitors set up, and obviously, 2 keyboards and mice for it as well. Enabling and Disabling integration has no effect, if I use the other mouse to move off the VM, it unfocuses it.

I would prefer not to have another dedicated machine operation, as its not really going to be used too much. Any help is appreciated.
