Send "CTRL-ALT-DEL" and unlock the windows screen

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

can someone please tell me if it is possible to unlock an locked windows screen (Send CTRL-ALT-DEL, enter the password and confirm) with AutoIt?

I tried a lot of possibilities, but it seems like all AutoIt commands commands are ignored when the windows screen is locked. B)

Thanks a lot.

If you read the help files you will see

Windows does not allow the simulation of the "CTRL-ALT-DEL" combination!

Welcome to the forums!

To add to BigDod's words, I believe that Windows' security model prevents any automation from occurring while the Workstation Locked screen is up, so I'm afraid you're out of luck. B)

If you can do it, keep very quiet about it, as you will have broken a very fundamental design issue that was made just to prevent you from doing exactly what you are advocating. B)
