Alt Gr key (right alt) randomly stops working when working on Microsoft RDP client and behaves as left alt instead.
I am on a Macbook Air M1, with a PC keyboard, using an AzertyPC layout in MacOS.
When this occurs, switching the RDP keyboard mode to Unicode will fix the problem but it will create other issues (like shift+leftAlt+key will stop working in visual studio inside the RDP)
This leads to three questions:
- There is a workaround on windows for this issue which is to press ALT+Enter on a RDP window. Is there an explanation on what it does? Is there a smilar workaround on MacOS?
- Why switching to Unicode makes Alt Gr work properly?
- Why in Unicode Shift+LeftAlt+Key works differently?
