Connect to remote Hyper-V 2016 server via rdp, then connect to hyper-v machine, set it to full screen: no option to exit this full screen!

Hi,

I got an rdp session to a Windows 2016 server which has hyper-v.
When I connect to a Hyper-v vm and go in full screen, this works fine, but I cannot exit! Whatever I try ctrl + alt + home, ctrl + alt + break, it just gets me out of the rdp session not out of the hyper-v!

Please advise.

The blue RD Session status bar can be moved. Move it to the right or the left.

The Hyper-V session console blue status bar will be under that. If not, after moving the RDS one poking the top centre of the screen with the mouse ought to bring it down.

Hi! You may want to try using the "Restore Down" button on the pinned VM bar at the top of the screen. I know it's not a keyboard command as you were looking for, but it does work.

 

If that won't work for you there is a program you can get called KeyTweak that will let you remap the function keys to whatever you like. I haven't used it, but I know someone who does and he says it works. The only thing to note is during the install, choose Custom Installation and deselect the add-ons you don't really need. If you choose the Express Installation, you'll get some crapware.

 

You can get it from Tucows: http://www.tucows.com/preview/327616

There is no button on top of the screen.
This should be functioning out of the box, won't install extra software.

Based on what I understand, there is no combination of keys that will work for your situation.. So that's why I suggested that you should use  Tucows which would let you remap the function keys to whatever you like :)
