How do I send "Ctrl-Alt-Del" to a Windows SUT

I have a RealVNC window open to a Windows’s PC where I was running my SUT and recording and playing back Eggplant scripts. I left it alone for a while and the Windows end timed out and locked the PC. Now I don’t know how to get Eggplant to send the “Ctrl-Alt-Del” key sequence to wake up the Windows end. On my Windows PC, running RealVNC to the same Windows target SUT, I right click on the RealVNC window border and a menu item says “Send Ctrl-Alt-Del”. There’s got to be some Eggplant equivalent, but I can’t find it.


The Command (or Apple) key on the Mac keyboard corresponds to the Windows Alt key. If you have an “extended” keyboard with a forward delete key then you can send Ctl-Alt-Del by just pressing control-command-delete.

That worked… Thanks!
(Yes, I’m a not only an Eggplant “newbie” but a total Mac “newbie”, too!)

GREAT!!! Thanks!!! I had seen ALT above Option on my keyboard and had found that combination didn’t do it.
