Hi,

It looks like the RDP support some windows key shortcuts for some specific actions, looks at this post for more information:

https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K45321369

Additional, you can configure some actions in the RDP to optimize the user experience:

"Configuring a resource for RDP remote desktop web access"

Hope it´s help.

We use 'Server Type' = 'Remote Desktop Web Access'.

So there is an HTTPS connection to the RDP server and this opens a new RDP connection to the end server as the user is prompted to enter the hostname.

In the 'Custom Parameters', it is included 'keyboardhook:i:2' whis is echoed back to the .rdp file - that's Ok. However, the Windows Key combinations that usually works in our computers, don't work there.

In this document says that the 'Windows key combinations' work for 'Remote Desktop Web Access' (Server Type):
