Ctrl-Alt-DelWhen you remotely control a computer, there will come a time when you need to unlock or log into the system. To do so, you need to use Ctrl-Alt-Del. However, if you just hit the key combination on your keyboard, it will only be executed on your local system. Therefore, when you're in remote control mode, use the shortcut menu (left-click the icon in the upper left hand corner of the window) and choose "Send Ctrl-Alt-Del."
