[KDE] Closing taskbar windows


Hi,

Is it possible to bind 'Close' to middle mouse button, so it will close the program when clicked on it on a taskbar? Instead of clicking with right mouse button and selecting 'Close'...

Thanks!

What about Alt-F4. Won't that do what you want?

Not exactly, I would have to click on the window using left mouse button to select it first and then use keyboard to close the window... Much more work if there is a lot of windows to close.

Not really. You'd have to click on the windows on the task bar also. But I probably don't understand what you're trying to do.

By saying 'I would have to click on the window using left mouse button to select it', I meant clicking on the window on task bar.
I want be able to click on a window on task bar with middle mouse button to close it - same as for example you can close tabs in firefox or chrome by clicking on them with middle mouse button. I hope it makes sense now...

I don't know if it is possible (i think it isn't), but note that the KDE has many different task manager widgets. Perhaps one of them has this functionality.

I checked the possible mouse/keyboard actions in KDE's system settings and didn't find anything relevant other than Alt-F4.
