Microsoft Windows 2016 server

You login to a Windows server with RDP, and are asked to press CTRL+ALT+DEL to change you password.
But if you press that – it will happen on your computer instead of on the server you remote control.

Press CTRL+ALT+END to send order to Windows server to show change password dialog.
