Hide yakuake behind active windows [solved]


Is there a way to tell yakuake to go hide itself behind other active windows --- without the user having to press the F12 key?

I just untick the "Keep Windows above other windows option" in the preferences; that way I can bring another window in front of yakuake, but retrieve yakuake with F12.

thanks so I see there is some light ahead in this darkness of mine ... but where do I get this option? I do not get it in Control Center. I use Slackware 12.2 with KDE 3.5.10

To access the yakuake preferences, open yakuake, then in the bottom right hand corner, there are three buttons: the middle one opens the yakuake menu, from which you can open the preferences, or change some of the more common settings directly.

Thank You pwc101,
--- it so easy --- how can I not have seen this button --- in fact that solves the other problem, I always wanted to change the dimensions (size) of the Yakuake window, now I can.

Good day ...
