in kde i know a work around, if u right click the icon and hit properties, under execute it should give u the command that calls it. then edit kmenu and add that command to the menu and create a shortcut key there. i'm sure there is another way, but that is the quickest way i could think of

You can set it up yourself with the KDE configuration - there is a menu for it. Also, MenuDrake allows you to assign shortcuts for programs in the menus.
I have Minimize set as Win + Keyp [-] and maximize as Win + keyp [+].

Hi archu,

The default for KDE to minimize all apps is

ctrl+alt+d

You can configure it in KDE Control Panel > Regional & Accessability > Keyboard Shortcuts

Good Luck,

LJ
