Techtrivia - task manager shortcut

      After years of using ctrl + alt + del to open task manager , since Windows Vista , Microsoft has changed the ctrl + alt + del shortcut  to take you to a screen that gives you options similar to the one in the screenshot below .

and you had to click on task manager if you wanted to open it , turns out that the actual shortcut for task manager now  is

 ctrl + shift + esc 

which, by the way works in windows 8 as well .
