The default configuration for running windows inside of VMware Fusion on a mac is to have ctrl + left click act as a right click. This can cause issues when trying to select multiple files etc. Fortunately, this setting is easily disabled in the Keyboard and Mouse settings for the virtual machine.
- Go to settings
- Go to Keyboard & Mouse settings.
- Edit the Windows 10 profile
- Uncheck the option for Secondary Button
- Save and exit
This simple fix will save you a lot of frustration. Hope it help!
