Re: NVDA does not react when pressing ctrl+alt+delete

Luke Robinett

I’ve been using Windows operating systems since the early 90s and I am reluctantly going to admit that I had no idea there was another way to get to the task manager besides control alt delete. See? Even us seasoned vets can learn something new from this great forum. Thanks folks

Use the button to copy your current configuration to the logon screen in the general category of the NVDA settings. That should get it working. NVDA uses a completely different configuration on the login and control alt delete screens.

Thanks Brian!

I managed now to make NVDA reacting in security fields. How can I make Braille work ther, too?

I have activated that but somehow it does not work. Why?

I presume you mean you have managed to bring up Task Manager, but it's not behaving as expected.  There were some significant changes in Task Manager with the introduction of Windows 10, and there is a lot of material on the group archive here, as well as the Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users archive, about dealing with Task Manager under Windows 10.

If by "does not work" you mean that Task Manager is not appearing, then, please, try the alternate invocation shortcut, CTRL+SHIFT+ESC that was offered by Gene.  It is highly unlikely that it would not work to bring up Task Manager if CTRL+ALT+DEL is not working.
