Ctrl-Alt-Del in Hyper-V and RDP

Periodically I have to look this up again, so I’m putting it here for future reference and for anyone else who needs it.

To send Ctrl-Alt-Del to a remote desktop (RDP) session, press Ctrl-Alt-End.

To send Ctrl-Alt-Del to a virtual machine when you are RDP’d into the Hyper-V host, press RtCtrl-Del. You must use the right-hand control button.

    I’m finding this to not be true, particularly RtCtrl-Del line – seems to just not work. Will comment again if something changes for me.

    RtCtrl+Del didn’t work.

    You can also use the GUI top bar “Action” menu with “CTRL+ALT+END” to issue the keys.
