Key combinations, such as Ctrl+Alt+Del, do not work with Remote Desktop since they will apply to the client computer and not the remote. There are combinations you can use that will simulate the special key combinations on the remote computer.
- Ctrl+Alt+End: Task Manager or Windows Security dialog box (acts like Ctrl+Alt+Del).
- Alt+Page Up or Alt+Page Down: Task Switching (like Alt+Tab and Alt+Shift+Tab).
- Ctrl+Alt+Plus symbol: Puts a snapshot of remote session on clipboard (like PrtScn).
- Ctrl+Alt+Minus symbol: Puts a snapshot of active window in remote session on clipboard (like Alt+PrtScn).
