This is an update posting for my original blog entry
on this subject.
It looks like the page to which I was previously linking for Citrix and Microsoft Terminal Server/Remote Desktop hotkeys/keystroke combinations has gone bye-bye.
Rather than leave everybody hanging, here is the original list as found using the Internet Archive's WayBack Machine
. Since Session Computing Solutions LLC
was gracious enough to make the original list available, it was never my intention to paste it on my blog and claim it as my own. At this point, though, I haven't much point but to make it available here while giving full credit for it to the original page. The only changes I have made are a few tweaks (e.g. line-breaks, font style changes) that make it a little more readable.
[Also, from digging around a little on Citrix's site, it appears that you can
make Windows hotkeys "pass-through" to the RDP session. I haven't tried this personally, but supposedly, if you follow the instructions here
, you can get native hotkey combinations to be picked up by the remote OS instead of your local Windows. Please drop a comment to let me know if you get this working.]
If this list of keystrokes helps you half as much as it helped me, you are about to have a much, much
better day. Enjoy!(NOTE: You can also download this "Cheat Sheet" as a PDF.)
