Windows XP: Remote Desktop key commands

Came across this link off the website. Its some useful key command that allow you to do some things as if you were physically on the machine. I use the Windows Remote Desktop feature almost on a daily basis. One of the problems I have is if I need to reboot the machine or perhaps want to check on a process that is running, etc. Here are those key commands that you can use:

  • Ctrl+Alt+End: Task Manager (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).
