Controlling Windows

Now that you know how to launch a program, you can experiment with KDE’s features for controlling program windows. Launch the KWrite program again and practice the following steps. Most of this is old hat for Windows users, but there are a few features that are unique to KDE.

Window Features

KDE windows have some important features. The right side of the title bar contains three buttons, just like those in Windows. From left to right these are:

Minimize

This hides the window, leaving only an icon in the taskbar.

Maximize

This expands the window to the largest possible size. If the window is already maximized, it will be restored to its previous size.

Close

This closes the window. The keyboard shortcut for this is Alt-F4.
