How to send special keystrokes

When I'm controlling a remote windows machine, how do I send a keystroke like "alt+tab"? Is there a virtual keyboard that I'm missing?

Re: How to send special keystrokes

Hi there WildDoktor,

 Thanks for posting in the Community!

To send special key entries to the remote computer during a session, access the tool bar located at the top of the screen.

Select “Actions”tab and under the “Remote Interaction” section, you should be able to check the box for “Send key combinations”.

By doing so, you will be able to execute commands mentioned in your post on the remote computer.

Hope this helps.

Thanks again

Oh; I see it now while using the desktop app. I was using the Chrome browser app, and it's (understandably) more limited than the desktop app. Thank you!

Re: How to send special keystrokes

I am using the TeamViewer 14 Linux client to access a Windows 10 host. I cannot find this option in any of the places mentioned above. Is it supported in my setup at all?

Doesn't work for me. The option is selected, still CMD-ALT-ESC doesn't work on my remote

(OSX Mavericks to MacOS Sierra)

Well, it's not sending ANY combination shortcuts to after effects (from osx 10.13.6 to win10).

Re: How to send special keystrokes

Even still, I cannot send certain key combinations. For Instance "Win + D" and  "Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Q"  doesn't seem to work. Should I enable anything else? FYI: I am connecting to a Ubuntu Machine from a Windows Machine.

Re: How to send special keystrokes

I am using Teamviewer 14 aswell on both host and client but this option does not seem to be supported on linux.

Did anyone find a solution to this?
