One-Liner: Open Start Menu From Powershell

Working on Windows Server 2008 in a RemoteDesktoption (remote desktop inside remote desktop inside remote desktop), It’s a challenge to point the mouse curser to the exact lower left pixel to open the start menu.

Good News, Just open Powershell, and past this one-liner to simply open the start menu  without changing anything or creating any files on the server.

 $wshell = New-Object -ComObject wscript.shell;$wshell.SendKeys('^{ESC}')

P.S.: Of course you can also create a VBS script to do same. but in my case, this wasn’t preferable.
