If I have VirtualBox running in Fullscreen mode how can I minimize it so I can switch to my Linux programs, Other VMs, or my desktop?
If you put your mouse down to the bottom center or top center of the screen, VirtualBox control panel should pop up.
If your bottom panel is set up to show your windows list (should show something like yourVMname running)
You can right-click on this and select Minimize...
You could also try hitting the right ctrl key + F which should bring you out of full-screen mode.

The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.
I've got the same problem. Unfortunately, VirtualBox brings all keyboard shortcuts and mouse clicks/movements into the Virtualized environment. I haven't seen a specific shortcut to minimize VirtualBox anywhere.
So I guess... ration your time in VirtualBox so it's not as often that you have to do it. I still think this would be an incredibly neat feature- even just allowing you to change to another desktop.
