How to send ctrl alt del to a remote desktop session

Windows System Administrators often use Remote Desktop Sessions or RDP to connect to other machines on the network. Tele comuters and folks working from home also often connect to work using a VPN and Remote Desktop. So how exactly do you send a ctrl alt del combination to your remote desktop machine ?

One way is to use your mouse and click on Start Button and then click on Windows Security. The second way, by just using the Keyboard is to press ctrl+alt+end instead of ctrl alt del. Meaning hold ctrl, alt and End keys together at the same time. This is a great alternative to the "Mouse" way of doing it, especially for those who prefer keyboard shortcuts for typing continuity and speed!
