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 toWindows NT/2000 CTRL+ALT+DEL.
ALT+PAGE UP switches between programs from left to right. Similar toWindows ALT+TAB.
ALT+PAGE DOWN switches between programs from right to left. Similar toWindows 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 asnapshot of the entire client window area on the Terminal server clipboard (provides the same functionality as pressing PrintScrn on a local computer.)
