Bill gates had to apologize for Ctrl+Alt+Del

"Clearly, the people involved, they should have put another key on in order to make that work", he said.

Grinning, he answered: "The IBM PC hardware keyboard only had one way that it could get a guaranteed interrupt generated".

Bill Gates has given away $4.6bn (£3.6bn) to charity, and what is the Microsoft co-founder's largest donation since 2000. Gates spoke at length on this back in 2013.

After moderator David Rubenstein of the Carlyle Group suggested that control-alt-delete was Gates idea, bringing laughter from the audience, Gates emerged with his own explanation pinning it on the keyboard maker IBM. However, Rubinstein was asked by the former head of Microsoft a more detailed explanation.

"Sure, if I can make one small edit, I'd make that a single-key operation".

On a panel in 2011 with Gates, Bradley said, "I have to share the credit". "We could have had a single button, but the guy who did the IBM keyboard design didn't want to give us our single button", Gates said then, according to CNN.

Microsoft has long abandoned the infamous key combination as a reboot command and has replaced it was a way to access the Task Manager.

At Bloomberg Global Business Forum, Gates added that if he could go back in time and change the small things without putting other things at risk, he would definitely create a new single key operation. Surprisingly as well, it was not Vista.

"It was not a memorable event", said Bradley, a longtime IBM employee, speaking of that day in 1980 or '81 when he discovered control-alt-delete. It's normally the first fix we try when something goes wrong.

If you think about it, pressing three keys at the same time might seem a bit unpractical.

Gates hasn't ever been one to look backward on yesteryear's mistakes.
