Ctrl + Alt + Delete on a MacBook Pro

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

I just had to login to a windows server using VNC, and I was required to "Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to log on". Not as easy as it sounds on a Mac laptop which has no "Alt" or "Delete" key. And a quick Google pointed to remapping keys on the keyboard which did not appeal to me.

After a bit of playing around I found the equivalent keystrokes that will work:

"control" + "option" + "fn" + "delete"

No keyboard remapping required.

Hopefully that saves you some time if you ever have the need.
