Ctrl+Alt+Delete

Recommended Posts

How can you make a fullscreen OpenGL window allow users to use ctrl+alt+delete to close the program in case it quits responding? Thanks.

The task manager escape key sequence should never be disabled anyway (even using DirectInput).

Basically, your user ought to be able to press ctrl+alt+del at any time and get the task manager up.

If these keys don''t work, then your program has probably truely frozen the entire system.

That''s not entirely true, you can actually bypass all key combinations with DirectInput, including ctrl-alt-del. Though you should never do that, if your code crashes, the user should have a chance of killing the process.
