Remote Desk Top Host Monitor Icon Tray focus

I frequently run Remote Desktop (RDP) in span mode across both of my monitors. I run the RDP window maximized.

It would be nice if there were some way I could configure a "hot key" to bring the Host computer's Icon tray into focus so I could click on an icon to bring a program on the local desktop into focus without having to "de-maximze" my remote desktop window.

Since we are talking RDP - I did ask a while ago if it was possible to get DF Title Bar Buttons onto the RDS title bar.
Jon did mention adding it to a list - is it still on and doable?

I've added your request to our feature request list. In the meantime, you can change the "Apply Windows key combinations" setting to "On this computer". Then you can hit ALT+TAB or the Windows key to cycle to other applications. See the attached screenshot for clarification of the setting.


It is still on the list, not sure if it's doable yet but if we can, we'll certainly do it.
