Thread: minimise all windows

  1. #1

    Default minimise all windows

    Ok ok ok. I know it is a windows invention. But not everthing windows has to be bad does it (heracy I hear you say )

    Is it possible to set up Win-M keyboard combination to minimise all windows?

    PC setup is a fresh install of opensuse 11.0 with KDE4.

    I suspect I know the answer but I just have to ask the experts to be sure.

    Thanks.

    ALT-CTRL-D will minimize all windows, and pressing again will return all to
    desktop.

    The hotkey can be changed (or Win-M can be added) in KDE Control Center
    (Personal Settings), Regional & Accessibility, Keyboard Shortcuts, Shortcut
    Schemes tab, about 2/3 way down in 'Panel' section.

    I think this is the setting for KDE3, not for KDE4.

    Ctrl-Alt-D doens't work in KDE4.

    Any suggestions for KDE4?

    Thanks.

    Well drat!!

    Have you looked in the Control Center Keyboard-Shortcuts? The KDE3 hotkey is
    listed as 'toggle showing desktop'. There's likely a similar entry in the
    KDE4 system, and you could bind your WIN-M to that. Have a look.
