Remote Desktop Keyboard Shortcuts

by @ 6:24 am. Filed under Remote Connectivity, Tips & Tricks

I work with Remote Desktop a lot. When I am writing an article or a blog post, I often need to take screen shots. The shortcuts that I use on my desktop, such as ALT+PRINT SCREEN to capture the active window, do not work inside a Remote Desktop session. I have to use CTRL+ALT+Minus sign (-) key combination. Here are some common keyboard shortcuts that you can use while working in a Remote Desktop session.

  1. CTRL+ALT+END (Opens the Logon screen dialog box)
  2. ALT+PAGE UP (Switch between programs from left to right)
  3. ALT+PAGE DOWN (Switch between programs from right to left)
  4. ALT+INSERT (Cycle through the programs in most recently used order)
  5. ALT+HOME (Display the Start menu)
  6. CTRL+ALT+BREAK (Switch the client computer between a window and a full screen)
  7. ALT+DELETE (Display the Windows menu)
  8. CTRL+ALT+Minus sign (-) (Place a snapshot of the entire client window area on the Terminal server clipboard and provide the same functionality as pressing ALT+PRINT SCREEN on a local computer.)
  9. CTRL+ALT+Plus sign (+) (Place a snapshot of the active window in the client on the Terminal server clipboard and provide the same functionality as pressing PRINT SCREEN on a local computer.)
