When using remote desktop to connect to a Windows 8 computer Win Key combinations are not being sent to the remote computer. Is there a way to pass them to the remote computer?

If you're connecting from a Windows 7 go to the options dialog:

Options button

And there under Local Resources change the keyboard configuration:

Local Resources

That should send the combinations to the other computer.
