Minimize active window in KDE?

In KDE, I know you can minimize the active window by pressing Alt+F3 (to open the command box) then N (to minimize the window).

Is there a way to do it with one key-combination, or can KDE be set that way? It'd be tremendously useful, methinks.

The key bindings are configurable. In the control center, go to "Regional & Accessibility -> Keyboard Shortcuts" and set a shortcut for "Minimize Window".

You can customize keybindings to your hearts content

Have Fun

Wow, you sure can! (I'm using a simple Alt+Spacebar now---whee!)
