Remote Desktop - Hotkeys and Keyboard Shortcuts


If you use Remote Desktop as often as I do, then sooner or later you'll need to use a hot key on the remote system. I came across the list and formated nicely so I could put a copy on my wall. Then it occurred to me that perhaps others would like to get their hands on a copy.
