Is it possible to exit a Windows Remote Desktop Connection in full-screen mode with a keyboard shortcut?
I'm using Windows 8.

You can disconnect from a windows 10 session with tsdiscon.exe . I created a taskbar short cut for just this purpose. Not sure if that executable is available in windows 8. (it should be). I found this to be the most expedient way to logoff a remote desktop session when the remote desktop bar is intentionally hidden (it always seemed to be in the way).
PS: The tsdiscon.exe file should be located on the PC you're remoting into (not the one your on).
If you need to quickly move between remote PC and non-remote laptop, then the following method would allow you to quickly switch between the two side.
Prerequisite: A working laptop track pad able to detect 4 point touch or more
Tab, you will see the New Desktop button)
