TFS


Also found in: Acronyms, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

three-finger salute

The computer keystroke control-alt-delete, commonly used to force programs to close or the computer to restart. (A jocular play on the expression "one-finger salute," a rude raising of the middle finger to express anger, displeasure, or dismissal.) This computer is so janky that I have to give it the three-finger salute pretty much every day.
