Unlock Virtual Machine login window under Remote Desktop

If you are stuck up on how to login into Virtual Machine (VM) using Remote Desktop (RD), then here is a solution, for which I was able to figure out.

Windows requires Ctrl+Alt+Del to unlock the login window. However, issuing the same key combinations it would activate your local windows task manager / Windows Security window.

To unlock RD login window you can use Ctrl+Alt+End

However, to unlock VM login window under RD??

its Ctrl+Alt+Insert

isn't it so simple. damp I was not able to find that key combination in Google

Note: I am using Free VM Player, and not VM Workstation, which has an option to unlock login window using key combinations as available under default menu.
