How to use Alt + Ctrl + Del in a Windows Virtual machine

If you are in a console of  a Windows virtual machine hosted on the Virtual Center or ESX and want to use Alt + Ctrl + Del to unlock the screen, This is how you do it since hitting  Alt + Ctrl + Del will only lock your screen and not the virtual machine(That's frustrating, I know..)

So in a vSphere this is how you do it. Go to the console tab of the virtual machine and select Inventory > Virtual Machine > Guest > Send Alt+Ctrl+Del as shown in the image below.

In remote desktop we should use Alt+Ctrl+End instead

Happy Testing!
