Access Restart on Windows Remote Desktop

There are a few ways to get to the logoff/restart/shutdown screen on Windows Remote desktop. This is hidden for safety (as you generally don’t want to restart/shutdown a remote PC) but sometimes, you do:

  • Quickest way: Press ALT+F4 when viewing the desktop (not in any applications as it will close the application)
  • Alternatively you can hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and get to the shutdown options on the bottom right.

Also, if you are looking for a good remote desktop management client for the Mac, checkout CoRD.
