Sending Ctrl+Alt+Del to a Remote Desktop Connection machine

February 3rd, 2009

I spend a lot of my time working with many PCs from a single system using Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection feature. 99.9% of the time this works out great but there are times when I need to Ctrl+Alt+Del the remote machine. Problem is, the machine I'm working on picks up on the keystrokes and never passes on the key presses ...

So, what do you do? Simple, use Ctrl+Alt+End instead.

Bonus tip: If you work with several machines via RDC then you might find it useful to save the connections settings for later use. From the General tab in Remote Desktop Connection click Save As... and your settings will be available next time you want them (I give the files the names of the machines they connect to).
