Switching Virtual and Remote Desktops

If I’m using full-screen remote desktop in Windows 10, it can be handy to have my local computer on one virtual desktop, and the remote computer on another.

I usually turn off the title bar, so it’s a seamless experience.

Switching from local to remote is easy: Ctrl+Windows Key+Right Arrow

Switching back is more difficult, since the remote desktop will capture your keys.

Trick is to press Ctrl + Alt + Home first. This brings up the Remote Desktop title bar, which then means you can press Ctrl + Windows + Left to switch back.
