Everyone who has a PC knows how the key shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Delete is used. It is usually used to access the computer’s task manager when something doesn’t seem right.

However, the founder of the mentioned computer company, Bill Gates regrets having the Ctrl+Alt+Delete command. He prefers if it were just a single button.

How much has he slowed down the entire world by stealing 2 seconds from every living typing person worldwide since the dawn of the PC?

How can we collectively tax Microsoft for this lost time and productivity? :D

I have a Windows 10 computer which I keep updated  with all my Windows 7 software, but never use it.

Windows 10 seems to have been designed by someone with a Doctorate Degree in Medieval French Literature.

The Ctrl+Alt+Delete key that Bill Gates "invented" did not access the task manager. It was the way to reboot a "DOS" "OS/2" or "Windows" computer up until Windows 95, when the function of Ctrl+Alt+Delete was changed to Task Manager, and then an "interrupt" that invoked a menu of functions (including the Task Manager).

Also, it is possible to complete the "3 finger salute" with one hand now that most PC keyboards include an Alt and Ctrl on the right side of the keyboard's Spacebar, closer to the Delete key.
