    Windows Remote Desktop Shortcut Keys

    Remote Desktop has some really handy shortcuts that are documented right there in the help file, If you choose not to apply Windows key combinations to your Remote Desktop sessions, you can use these Terminal Server shortcut keys to perform many of the same functions.


    • ALT+PAGE UP : Switches between programs from left to right.

    • ALT+PAGE DOWN : Switches between programs from right to left.

    • ALT+INSERT : Cycles through the programs in the order they were started.

    • ALT+HOME : Displays the Start menu.

    • CTRL+ALT+BREAK : Switches the client between a window and full screen.

    • CTRL+ALT+END : Brings up the Windows Security dialog box.

    • ALT+DELETE : Displays the Windows menu.

    • CTRL+ALT+Minus (-) : symbol on the numeric keypad Places a snapshot of the active window, within the client, on the Terminal server clipboard (provides the same functionality as pressing PrintScrn on a local computer.)

    • CTRL+ALT+Plus (+) : symbol on the numeric keypad Places a snapshot of the entire client window area on the Terminal server clipboard (provides the same functionality as pressing ALT+PrintScrn on a local computer.)


    Note


    • On an NEC98, these shortcut keys are different in two cases:

    • CTRL+ALT+BREAK is replaced by F12.

    • CTRL+ALT+END is replaced by F15.

    • CTRL+ALT+BREAK and CTRL+ALT+END are available in all Remote Desktop Connection sessions, even when you have chosen to apply Windows key combinations on the remote computer.

    Thanks for this nice tip, from all the above shortcut CTRL+ALT+BREAK is really useful to me. When the main PC and a server are in full-screen mode and the server window is in front of all others and fills the screen and there is no way to get to the main PC. This command solves the problem.
