I've installed a windows 7 virtual machine and I'm starting it using virt-manager and putting it in full screen mode in a workspace.

I would like to change betweek workspaces without needing to leave full screen mode. If I press CTRL+ALT+Arrow, this is sent to the windows machine and nothing happends.

Any tips/tricks?

Try CTRL+ALT. That is the key combination to 'release' your keyboard. So, CTRL+ALT, CTRL+ALT+DOWN should release the keyboard from being passed to the VM, and then switch to the workspace bellow.
