Windows Remote Desktop Shortcut Keys
By on September 11th, 2008

I have been using Remote desktop for quite some time now, but always had to use the mouse to navigate between my laptop and the remote computer. Today I came across a excellent resource from Windows Guides which listed the shortcut keys that can be used on a remote desktop.

Alt+Home > This works as a windows key replacement on the remote desktop, displaying the Windows Start menu.

Alt + Page Up > Works as a Alt+Tab replacement on the remote desktop, allowing you to switch between open application to the left.

Alt + Page Down > Works as a Alt+Tab replacement on the remote desktop, allowing you to switch between open application to the right.

Alt + Insert > Switches between programs in the most recently used order.

Alt + Del > Shows you the windows context menu on the remote desktop.

Ctrl + Alt + End > A Ctrl+Alt+Del replacement for the remote desktop.

You can view the entire list of shortcuts at Windows Guides: Keyboard Shortcuts to Use with Remote Desktop.

    slick tips these. keyboard shortcuts are just so much quicker, and in some ways, much more convenient than having to reach for the mouse. it’s especially true for me since my primary is a laptop, and while i absolute love my thinkpad’s trackpoint, i’d still rather use the keyboard where possible. so thanks.
