Windows server 2022 VM unable to hit enter key


Jul 3, 2023
I installed windows server 2022 as a guest VM. I am unable to hit the enter key after setting a password. Windows not recognizing I hit the enter key. Any suggestions?

Faced the same issue. Funnily enough tried both noVNC and SPICE but the answer is that enter key works fine, it is intuitively 'tab' key which changes from entering password to confirm password field.

This is related to Core installation of Windows Server 2022.
