i am not aware of this option in kde, or gnome for that matter. i tried it out once in xp a long while back and it annoyed me to no end. perhaps it is something that takes some getting used to.

defaut move

I liked it a lot in windows but haven't found it in Linux yet. I don't know about the above, but will try it even though I think I already did. Worth looking at again for me. As it really irritates me that I have to move to the default manually. Once you're used to it you won't want to be without it.

If you can't find a way to move the cursor to the default button, have you tried just hitting the "Enter" key?

I just stumbled on this thread while doing a search. I love that feature and I'm trying to find a way to get it working. Any solutions? Maybe in a different window manager?
