If you disconnect from a remote desktop without logging off, applications in the desktop remain open. You can also disconnect from a server and leave remote applications running.

Even if you do not have a remote desktop open, you can log off of the remote desktop operating system. Using this feature has the same result as sending Ctrl+Alt+Del to the desktop and then clicking Log Off.

Note

The Windows key combination Ctrl+Alt+Del is not supported in remote desktops. To use the equivalent of pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, select Send Ctrl+Alt+Del from the drop-down menu located at the right end of the client menu bar. To display the menu bar, click the down-arrow on the tab at the top-center of the window.
