Remote Desktop and autotype? How?

    When I use the global auto type key in the RD logon window it places a á in stead of username/password, it doesn't recognize the global key.
    How to configure this? Any suggestions are very welcome!

      I use it with RD/Term server all the time and it never misses a beat - well, almost never. The trick is to bring KeePass up, select the entry and Perform Auto-Type. Using GAT in RD passes the keys to the RD session, not the local machine.

      cheers, Paul

      You can also configure RDP client to send all shortcuts to your desktop, not the remote server.
      This way you can use GAT.

      ALT-TAB and such will be directed to your desktop as well, but in my case is a small inconvenience as I use RDP on a lot of systems with each different passwords.

      Using GAT is way faster than opening Keepass each time and looking for the entry, then select it, then choose Auto-Type.

    GAT? What is GAT? Sorry, new to KeePass, so far no matter what I try fails.
