In Windows XP we used to use the Ctrl + Alt + Del keyboard shortcut to open Task Manager. Pressing the same hotkey in Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 operating systems opens a screen which shows Lock this computer, Switch User, Log off, Task Manager, and Change a password options.
By now, many of you might already have installed the newest version of Windows, Windows 8, on your tablets. As you may know, inserting a hotkey or keyboard shortcut is a tedious task on touch devices. Even though the touch keyboard in Windows 8 is pretty good and helps you insert basic keyboard shortcuts without a problem, it’s still a difficult task for most users.
Keyboard addicts who have installed Windows 8 on tablets would be delighted to know that Ctrl + Alt + Del hotkey can easily be implemented without touching the touch-screen. To insert Ctrl + Alt + Del, simply press the physical Windows logo button on your tablet and then press the power button to see Ctrl + Alt + Del screen. This trick works in Windows 8 Developer Preview as well.
