Remote Desktop Keyboard Malfunction Solution

I connect to the office often via Remote Desktop (RDP) from my Windows 7 machine at home. Most of the time this works fine but sometimes the keyboard goes insane when on the remote machine. A few keys work, some don't work at all, others cause strange behavior like closing windows or randomly opening new ones.

windows keyIn past only a reboot seemed to fix the problem, but today I learned that hitting the 'Windows' key while on the remote host resets the keyboard and all goes to normal.

The credit goes to 'dshreve' answer on the Super User forum and of course Google for pointing me there. Wish I could upvote the answer but don't have enough points there for that. Thanks for saving my sanity 🙂

Windows Blue

Speculation is running rampant that Windows Blue, the successor to the much hated Windows 8 will see the return of the Start button, as well as other improvements.

I'm still a happy XP user at home and at work I use Windows 7 which I equally like. Having seen the strangeness of Windows 8, I decided to skip it as I did with Vista when it was released.

Seems like Microsoft is getting it right (or wrong) with every other Windows release. If some of the classic and useful interfaces like Windows 7 are returned, Windows Blue may just be the platform for my next upgrade.
