I’ve been using a PowerBook G4 to connect to my Windows PC at the office. It’s been working well over the years, though there are some quirks.
Now I have a new MacBook Pro. As before, I’m using Remote Desktop Connection to connect to my PC. I’ve just discovered something different. In an Excel file, on my Windows PC, connected to with RDC, I could go to the last populated cell in a column by holding ‘control’ (on the Mac) and pressing the down-arrow. This is how it works on the PC when I’m in the office, too.
I’ve just tried to do this on the MacBook, with surprising results. Control+Down arrow puts the RDC shortcut into my doc, and opens a new RDC window. How do I configure my keyboard such that I can use the normal Excel control?
FWIW, it’s not a huge issue. I can just switch to the old computer. But it would be nice to make the new one fully functional work-wise.
