Terminal Server Client Shortcut Key Combinations

Task-switching hotkeys operate on the local computer level and are not passed through to the Terminal Server. However, some alternative hotkeys have been provided in the RDP Client:

CTRL+ALT+END starts the Windows NT Security dialog box. Similar to Windows NT/2000 CTRL+ALT+DEL.

ALT+PAGE UP switches between programs from left to right. Similar to Windows ALT+TAB.

ALT+PAGE DOWN switches between programs from right to left. Similar to Windows SHIFT+ALT+TAB.

ALT+INSERT cycles through the programs in most recently used order. Similar to Windows ALT+ESC.

ALT+HOME displays the Start menu. Similar to Windows CTRL+ESC.

CTRL+ALT+BREAK switches the Client between a window and a full screen.

ALT+DELETE Displays the Windows menu.

CTRL+ALT+MINUS (Minus as in the - 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 ALT+PrintScrn on a local computer.)

CTRL+ALT+PLUS (Plus as in the + 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 PrintScrn on a local computer.)

Incoming Remote desktop on a vista machine when a user is logged on locally

I always wondered what the local user sees when I log on via RDP from a remote location.
Well today I finally saw it.


Administrator wants to connect to this machine.

Click OK to disconnect your session immediately or click cancel to stay connected.

Otherwise, you will be disconnected in 30 seconds.



There is no countdown to 0 from 30.

If you are not expecting this message, you have a problem!
