Send "Ctrl-Alt-Del" Command

The Send Ctrl-Alt-Delete tool is useful if you need to perform such tasks as logging in with different Windows credentials, locking the customer's machine or accessing the Task Manager. If you press Ctrl + Alt + Del on your keyboard while in session, the Logout dialog will be summoned on your own machine rather than on the customer's, but using the Send Ctrl-Alt-Delete tool will successfully bring up the Logout dialog on the customer's machine.

Note: This feature is not currently available for Mac technicians.
