Send Ctrl+Alt+Del to a RDP session within an RDP Session

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Ctrl+Alt+Delete… one of the most basic shortcuts everyone knows…

If you open up an RDP session you can’t use Ctrl+Alt+Delete, as the command would just be effective on the main PC, and not your RDP session.  So you’d use Ctrl+Alt+End.

This is great if you only going into a single RDP session, but what do you do if that first RDP session is a jump box and you have to open another RDP session or even another RDP session and then need to send Ctrl+Alt+Delete….

The On Screen Keyboard to the rescue

Open the On Screen Keyboard – “OSK”

On your main keyboard press Ctrl + Alt and then select Del on On Screen Keyboard

Logmein and Windows 7

I’ve been doing a lot of investigation and trying out of things on the Betas of Windows 7, and not since XP have I seen a rock solid product from Microsoft.

The problem with being on the forefront of technology however is that some software doesn’t always work without a bit of digging. (This is where the fun begins! You’ll be seeing a few of these Windows 7 posts come up…)

Logmein is a fantastic bit of software for accessing you PC over the internet, and its free! But to my dismay, the standard setup doesn’t quite work yet for Windows 7.


Problems with users holding open Remote Desktop Sessions…?

Friday, November 21st, 2008

We have a problem at work when people are remotely adminstering Windows servers with Remote Desktop technology (aka Terminal Services). Instead of logging off, they can leave sessions open but just disconnected. So how do we get round this? (Windows Servers have a connection limit of two users, unless its a properly configured Terminal Server).
