Change Passwords in Terminal Services

How can a user change their password in Terminal Services if they don't have access to control panels and ctrl + alt + del is for the local computer.

They are Terminal Server users only; never local on the domain.

Remote Desktop Connection will correctly capture the Ctl-Alt-Del in the terminal session if the terminal session is in full screen mode. This is the default setting under Local Resources in the Remote Desktop Connection. I'm not sure that I have actually tested it.

Otherwise you could schedule a forced password change, of course this is not the same as the user changing their password when they want.

Nope, Ctrl + Alt + Del doesn't work in full screen mode.

Ctrl-Alt-End should bring up the usual dialog in an RDP session.

oBdA, that sure works, I wonder why the options for keyboard mapping don't appear to work under Local Resources in the Remote Desktop Connection program, am I thinking of this wrong.

Because Ctrl-Alt-Delete is a special combination; this always works locally.

Yes I see now it doesn't actually say Ctl-Alt-Del, it uses the example Alt-Tab, sometimes I overlook the simple things.
