I'm on a Mac and I'm using Remote Desktop to connect to my Windows machine. There's a shortcut needed in one particular program that is Alt+Control+F11. How do I go about doing that?

F11 seems to require fn+the low volume key. And then from there I'm not entirely sure. Any help would be appreciated.

I have never used Remote Desktop, but you can configure OS X to use the function keys as standard function keys: System Preferences>Keyboard>"Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys". – jaume Oct 13 '12 at 19:38
I'll try that and report back. – geoffrobinson Oct 15 '12 at 13:05
