How do you send the Windows key to a RDP session without the RDP session being full-screen? (This is really important on Server 2012 systems.)



Here are the shortcuts that RDP recognizes:

Shortcut keyDescription
ALT+PAGE UPSwitches between programs from left to right.
ALT+PAGE DOWNSwitches between programs for right to left.
ALT+INSERTCycles through the programs in the order they were started.
ALT+HOMEDisplays the Start menu.
CTRL+ALT+BREAKSwitches the client between full-screen mode and window mode.
CTRL+ALT+ENDBrings up the Windows Security dialog box.
ALT+DELETEDisplays the Windows menu.
CTRL+ALT+MINUS SIGN (-)Places a snapshot of the active window, within the client, on the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server clipboard (provides the same functionality as pressing ALT+PRINT SCREEN on the local computer).
CTRL+ALT+PLUS SIGN (+)Places a snapshot of the entire client windows area on the RD Session Host server clipboard (provides the same functionality as pressing PRINT SCREEN on the local computer).

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
