    Default AW: configure 'start' button shortcut (gecko thumbnail) KDE

    Right-click on the 'start' button and select "Configure 'K-menu'".
    You can set/modify the keyboard shortcut there.

    and another intersting thing I noticed is : I'm working on 2 desktops and when I restart firefox it restarted firefox but all tabs from both desktops restart in one desktop = in one firefox. And my last point when I've 2 desktops opened when I restart PC will both desktop restart with all the applications & documents (and I also want firefox to open in the same stat on both desktop not just on one)

    Well, I'm running KDE in german, and it's "Einstellungen für 'K-Menü'" here.
    But you found it, no?

    found it thanks, but right now I'm little confused bout movin apps between desktops - I right click on the icon fo that runnin app-> move to desktop -> desktop x, but it won't move there and how to find what desktop I'm currently on? I mean when i'm switchin some window could appear desktop x and after few seconds it should dissapear. And what's the difference between virtual and ' real' desktop. Cause I've two virtual desktops but it seems to on one real desktop i.e. on the bottom panel when I hover over desktop 1 - runnin apps appear, but on dekstop 2 nothin.

    And what does this have to do with the title of this thread? (configure 'start' button shortcut (gecko thumbnail) KDE)
    Better start a new one for this problem.

    And I don't even understand what you mean with "the difference between virtual and ' real' desktop". What is a "virtual" desktop for you, and what is a "real" desktop for you?
    The desktop you're currently on should be highlighted in the desktop switcher plasmoid.

    Moving windows between desktops works fine here btw.

    it's similar, I was configuring shortcuts and the questions just 'flows' virtual desktop means under plasma ( the bottom panel) it's appearing as 1 'real' dekstop, but actually there are 2 virtual desktops in one, and the 2nd 'real' dekstop is empty

    I still don't understand what you are talking about. Can you maybe post a screenshot to clarify?

    Yes, the default is to have two virtual desktops, both should be shown in the desktop switcher in the bottom panel.
    As long as you do not open any windows on the second one, it will be empty of course.
    Just click on it to switch to it. Newly run applications now should open their windows on the second desktop.

    But what does "there are 2 virtual desktops in one" mean? And what's the "2nd 'real' desktop" that's empty (I suppose that's the second desktop that the desktop switcher shows, i.e. the 2nd _virtual_ desktop)?

    Hm, after re-reading your first post about this, it sounds that on login all applications open on the 1st virtual desktop instead of the one they were when you logged out. Is that what you mean?
    That would sound like a bug, maybe in the corresponding application. Firefox is no KDE application and doesn't really support KDE's session management, so this might cause it. You maybe could work around that by using "window rules".

    But I still don't get the relation to the "start" menu button or its shortcut... How is this "similar"?
