Windows 7: CTRL+ALT+DEL start task-manager instantly

CTRL+ALT+DEL start task-manager instantly

I miss how CTRL+ALT+DEL brings up the task-manager instantly in Windows 7 instead of bringing up the screen with options to lock the pc, change user etc.

Can I change this somehow?

The keyboard shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + Esc.

You can also pin it to the taskbar.
