This post is just for sake of my mental sanity because I’m always forgetting the keystroke combination to perform a CTRL-ALT-DEL thru Remote Desktop on an Azure Virtual Machine because if you press a CTRL-ALT-DEL key combination it will perform that command in your local machine – maybe now next time I will remember it, otherwise I know were to look.
To bring up the Windows Security dialog box for the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) (provides the same functionality as pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL on the local computer) you need to use the following keystroke combination: CTRL + ALT + END.
While researching, once again, I found out another very useful shortcut:
- ALT+PRINT SCREEN will place a snapshot of the active window, within the client, on the clipboard
