Ctrl Alt Del in nested remote desktop, How To Use Control Alt Delete in Remote Desktop
When using a windows remote-desktop session, the Control Alt Delete keyboard combination doesn’t necessarily do what you expect. It will display the ‘windows security’ dialog in the PC you are running remote desktop in. What if you need to display it on the remote desktop PC?
To press ctrl alt del within the remote desktop, use ctrl alt end.
What about nested remote desktops? – e.g. a remote desktop within a remote desktop. In this case, pressing ctrl alt end always takes you to the first remote desktop session (i.e. the ‘outer’ session).
To get to the ‘inner’ session press shift ctrl alt end
Update (21 Feb 2012): In a VMWare client, ctrl alt end doesn’t work, need to use ctrl alt insert.
