Can you record a control alt delete key stroke to change a windows password

Windows control alt delete or vm control insert key stroke.  Can these be recorded to change a password and interactively come back into Test Complete 14.60

Re: Can you record a control alt delete key stroke to change a windows password

 dont think this will work, because there isnt a specified object that we are sending the keys to. there must be another way to interact with "changing password" screen that involves some UI elements instead.

if there was somehow an object that supports the keys method, that would make it much simpler:

def ctrl_alt_del():
    MyObj.Keys("[Hold]^~[Del]")
Best,
