Configuring Hotkeys

Hotkeys are used to control the behavior of the client and as substitutes for the standard Windows hotkeys for a published application. For example, if you want to display the Windows Security Desktop on a Windows PC, you press CTRL+ALT+DEL. If you are running the client on a Windows PC and working in a MetaFrame Presentation Server session, this key combination opens the Security Desktop on the local machine. The hotkeys dialog box allows you to map common key combinations like CTRL+ALT+DEL to a key combination such as CTRL+F1 that will be ignored by your local operating system. When you press this new combination, the client sends CTRL+ALT+DEL to the server, displaying the Windows Security Desktop in your session.

Client hotkeys use a pair of keys. The first defines the modifier key and the second defines the character.

To change the default hotkeys

Select the Hotkeys tab, then for each hotkey select a modifier key and a character value from the following lists:
