If you installed the sage-*.*.ova image from the sagemath website, the Sage notebook should start automatically.

If you want to access a shell, you can type Right-Ctrl and F1, see this page.

I did install sage-7.4.ova, but don't get the window shown in step 3.3 Using Sage after the Virtual Machine booting, despite following all installation instructions to the letter. The window that does come up is quite different: it contains 'jupyter' sub-window with the run-down list of files "sage", "sage-7.4", "notebook-browser", and others with the options/buttons of 'upload', 'new' on the upper right side of the sub-window, with no command line anywhere. Pressing Right-Ctrl plus F1 does not bring anything, Any suggestions?
