Whilst still awaiting my replacement laptop I’ve been working in a VMware image on a spare blade server accessed via Remote Desktop. The idea being that when my laptop finally turns up I can just continue using the image there. For some reason the connection bar at the top of my remote desktop session keeps vanishing. I don’t mean that it’s just hidden – no amount of mouse wiggling can make it reappear. Fortunately, with the aid of a list of keyboard shortcuts, I can now toggle between full screen and windowed modes and hence escape a session.
