The Three Finger Salute
In addition to the accelerator keys discussed previously, the most famous key combination is undoubtedly the Ctrl (Control) key, the Alt (Alternate) key and the Del (Delete) key, affectionately known as the Three Finger Salute. It initiates different processes: Outside of Windows, this key sequence is used to soft reset a machine when a process or task has caused the machine to hang. Within Windows NT, 2000 and XP, its the key combination used to initiate the logon procedure and the Windows Security dialog box. Be careful using this combination within Windows 95 or 98, as you are likely to cause your machine to reboot!
