I have an application where Ctrl + Alt + End is mapped to a command, but when using the machine via Remote Desktop, Ctrl + Alt + End is used by the system as an alternative to Ctrl + Alt + Delete. Is there any way to change that setting for the Remote Desktop session so I can use Ctrl + Alt + End in my application?
Do you have the option of running AutoHotkey on the remote PC? You could run a script there which would trap an alternate hotkey of your choosing, and render it (there) as Ctrl+Alt+End.
Here is an alternative using Powershell. This worked for me in a slightly different and more complicated setup (connecting from a Mac laptop (no "end" key on keyboard) to a Linux server through SSH and then from the Linux server to a Windows Server 2016 server through Remote desktop protocol using the
rdesktop Linux RDP command line client).
- Click Start menu
- Click in the search bar
- Type "powershell"
- In the search results, click "powershell.exe"
In the PowerShell shell that opens, type the following:
Powershell -noprofile -nologo -noninteractive -command "(new-object -ComObject shell.application).WindowsSecurity()"
