Windows Task Manager Shortcut

Here's a tip for all of you out there.  In Vista, one thing that annoyed me was how disruptive the the CTRL+ALT+DEL screen was in switching from the desktop to the list.  Most of the time I would have to do this to bring up the task manager.  I just learned a new shortcut.  I'm not sure if it works for XP though.*never needed it cause it was pretty fast with two shortcuts*

CTRL+SHIFT+ESC = Task Manager 🙂

    it works a very longtime already. I used it in different situations when working with VPC in full screen F.I. this was in VPC as invasive as it is in vista.
