Evolution of Ctrl+Alt+Del
Ctrl+Alt+Del - The three-finger salute !!
This keyboard combination was invented by David Bradley, a designer of IBM PC.
Bradley originally designed Control-Alt-Escape to trigger a soft reboot (without warning or
confirmation by the user), but he found it was too easy to bump the left side of the keyboard and reboot the computer accidentally.
He switched the key combination to Control-Alt-Delete, a combination that was impossible to press with just one hand.
Ctrl+Alt+Del is a computer keyboard command
that can be used to reboot the computer, and
summon the task manager or Windows Security in more recent versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system, which provides the option to end programs, view CPU and memory usage, and start new programs, in addition to rebooting, shutting down, or logging out of the computer.
