In the web console of the VM there's no option to PASTE a text,
and clipboard isn't sync with VM console:
in several situation (f.ex. activation codes or complex password) would be helpful

No clipboard funcion in menu
and standard CTRL-V or SHIFT-INS does not work

Use a third-party tool: There are several third-party tools available that allow you to copy and paste text in a web console interface. One popular option is the "Auto-Type" feature in the KeePass password manager. This feature allows you to automatically enter complex passwords and other text strings into web forms.

Right-click on the VM and select Edit Settings
Select the VM Options tab and expand Advanced. Click on Edit Configuration next to Configuration Parameters.
Using the Name and Value fields at the bottom of the Configuration Parameters dialog box, add the following. Click on Add after each entry.
Name: isolation.tools.copy.disable, Value: false/on
Name: isolation.tools.paste.disable, Value: false/on
You should now be able to paste and copy content from the clipboard to the VM.
