I sometimes use Terminal Services to remote into my work machine. Then, on my work machine, if I enter a Hyper-V window that's maximized, I can't figure out how to minimize the Hyper-V window to get back to my host machine. It's quite annoying.

Anyone know an easy way to do this?

Note: I'm also using a macbook pro keyboard to TS into the host machine.
