CTRL+\ (Debug Current Debugger)

CTRL+\  ENTER 

Environment

Debuggers

CDB, NTSD, KD

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+\ is similar to the .dbgdbg (Debug Current Debugger) command.
