Remote Desktop backslash backlash \

During the afternoon I has the need to open an RDP session from within an active RDP session (jumping). When doing the jump I found an interseting bug/feature, the backslash special character didn’t work. For all of you not using swedish keyboard layout, backslash is the combination of ALT GR + [the character to the right of zero]. This effectively hindered my from logging on. I tried every possible combination (at least felt like it) and found that CRTL + ALT GR + [the character to the right of zero] did result in a backslach. Thank you Microsoft! I guess that there is an logical explanation to this somewhere out there…

    I often had the same situation and resolved it when doing a “restore down” to the window instead of having the MSTSC window maximised. This works in 99% of the cases… but I’ll try your hint next time.
