Is there a VNC Client for OS X that can send Ctrl+Alt+ Delete? I've googled, searched have not found. I frequently VNC into Windows machines and need to send this key combo in order to log in.
iTeleport is my VNC client of choice, and does precisely this.
Apple Remote Desktop can send Control Alt Delete:
If you use Remote Desktop to administer a PC that's running VNC, you may be wondering how to send the Ctrl-Alt-Del command (Control-Alternate-Delete) from a Mac to the PC. Though Mac and PC key mapping differs, you can use an alternate key combination in Remote Desktop 2.0 and later to send the command.
For full-size (desktop) keyboards, use Control-Option-Forward Delete.
Here is an alternative. This worked for me in a slightly different and more complicated setup (connecting from a Mac 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()"
If PowerShell is not available, instead search for "cmd.exe" and in the cmd prompt, type:
Note: if your Mac keyboard layout is not English US, it might be hard to get the
} characters in cmd.exe. In that case try the following:
- Change you keyboard layout on your Mac to English US (use System Preferences)
- In X11's preferences, check "Use system keyboard layout"
- In Windows, make sure to also set the keyboard layout to English US.
