I would like to be able to send specific keystrokes within a pcAnywhere session. Version 10.5 running Windows 2000 Professional on both the local and host machines. The combination I would like to send is a CTRL-ESC on the host machine. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Is it possible?

Thanks,
Dawn

As you probably know pcanywhere is very limited in the ammount of control keys it supports on  running.
For example to send a CTRL-ALT-DEL there's a specific button on the normal ( not full screen)
app mode.

My suggestion is to use a program like WinWedge install it on the host machine and point it
to the application that you want to be receiving this keystrokes
