I looking to determine whether certain Hot-Keys (Key stroke combinations) can be pass-throughed when in a Windows Terminal Services Session (2003) or Citrix session. We have some non-Windows applications running on our server that still use Hot-Keys (i.e. CTRL-F7, ALT-ESC) that when entered either don't receive any response or more likely are considered local commands for the end user's local Windows. Any help would be appreciated.

Toggle Title Bar   Shift F2
CTRL-ALT-DEL   Ctrl F1
CTRL-ESC   Ctrl F2
ALT-ESC   Alt F2
ALT-TAB   Alt + (plus)
ALT-BACK TAB   Alt - (minus)

OK, but can you add/modify/delte any of those and other keys? If so where do you do so? Thanks.

To configure Windows shortcut keys in a session

In the Remote Desktop Connection window, click Options.
On the Local Resources tab, under Keyboard, click the Apply Windows key combinations list, and then click the option you want. This option affects the behavior of Windows shortcut key combinations (such as ALT+TAB) when you are connected to a remote computer.
To configure your connection so that Windows shortcut keys always apply to your local desktop, choose On the local computer.
To configure your connection so that all Windows shortcut keys always apply to the desktop of the remote computer, choose On the remote computer.
To configure your connection so that Windows shortcut keys apply to the remote computer only when the connection is in full screen mode, choose In full screen mode only.
Click Connect.
