This key combination works in ICA sessions too. All key combinations with Alt which are not used by the X Window Manager function in the familiar way during an ICA session.
The following settings can be configured:
Keyboard Layout: default is pre-populated but you can also select a country-specific layout. Default means that the local keyboard setting will be used in ICA too.
Input language: The default preset uses the local keyboard setting in ICA too. Otherwise, the set layout will be enabled in ICA sessions.
Mapping Ctrl+Alt+End to Ctrl+Alt+Del for Citrix sessions: The user can use the familiar combination Ctrl+Alt+End to change the password instead of Ctrl+Alt+Del when the corresponding prompt message appears.
