Well

Well, it works in that it annoys the crap out of most people... Myself included. So, if the goal is to drive people AWAY from your posts, then job well done. Using all caps is fine if you want to add EMPHASIS to a SPECIFIC WORD OR PHRASE, but it just gets REALLY ANNOYING WHEN IT'S THE ONLY WAY PEOPLE TALK. IT ALSO PROMPTS PEOPLE TO MAKE SNARKY COMMENTS ABOUT HAVING A STUCK CAPS LOCK KEY INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON YOUR PROBLEM. Though I have to give you credit for getting the joke. Sadly, all too many people don't. So I would kindly ask that in the future you speak like a normal person, using a mix of lower and uppercase letters.

Ctrl shift and esc. Or you can left click an empty space on the task bar and select start task manager.

A better question

A better question is what happened to your keyboard. It looks like it has a stuck caps lock key, but then you managed to make a few things in lower case. Seems much more interesting.

Ctrl-alt-del

It should get you to a screen that allows shutting down, switching users, Task Manager, etc. You have a problem somewhere. If this has just started, Restore to a date before the problem. Also try SFC to repair any damages OS programs.

Huh

Some place they have been since DOS 1.0 CTL-ALT-Del actually sends a special signal to the CPU, it is part of the fundemental PC design

Check your system

CRTL-ALT-DELETE works fine on my Win 7 machine.

Win7 Controls: Ctrl+Alt+Del --- Try instead...

Win7 Controls: Ctrl+Alt+Del... you can also use --

Instead try instead: Ctrl+ Shift + Esc.. Doing this bypasses the login window and presents the Windows Task Manager window directly. Here you can view applications, processes, services and performance graphs. Also, you can either logout as a user OR proceed to shut-down your workstation.

You have a problem...

Ctrl/Alt/Del works fine in Win7. Why do you want to use it?
If it is to bring up the Task Manager, fine, but you can do that as indicated in other posts, or you can make a shortcut on the desktop so it only takes one click (create a shortcut using C:\Windows\system32\taskmgr.exe).
I hope you are using a legal copy since an illegal copy may have been hacked.
If it worked at one time, see if you can do a restore to a point where it did wotk.
