CTRL+ALT+\ (Debug Current Debugger)

The CTRL+ALT+\ key launches a new instance of CDB; this new debugger takes the current debugger as its target.

CTRL+ALT+\ 

Environment

Debuggers

WinDbg

Modes

user mode, kernel mode

Targets

live, crash dump

Platforms

all

 

Remarks

This is equivalent to launching a new CDB through the remote.exe utility, and using it to debug the debugger that you are already running.

CTRL+ALT+\ is similar to the .dbgdbg (Debug Current Debugger) command, however CTRL+ALT+\ has the advantage that it can be used when no debugger command line is available.
