maximize a window

October 13, 2018 Leave a comment

In Manjaro (XFCE) it’s “Alt+F10”. In Windows it’s “Super key + up arrow”.

In Manjaro, you can find and edit all window manager shortcut keys from Menu → Settings Manager → Window Manager → Keyboard tab.

Originally, I wanted to figure out how to maximize a VS Code window (reddit question here).

[manjaro] let “Super + d” show the desktop

February 9, 2017 Leave a comment

The “Windows key + d” (aka “Super + d”) minimizes all windows, i.e. it shows you the desktop. It works under Windows, it works under Ubuntu, but for some mysterious reason, under Manjaro (XFCE), it’s “Ctrl + Alt + d” that I’ll never get used to.

How to use the well-known “Super + d” shortcut?

There must a keyboard shortcut editor for this, but I never find it. So I created a new shortcut that calls a command-line application that minimizes all windows. This way you get the same result. The command-line command for showing the desktop is “wmctrl -k on“. You may have to install the package wmctrl.

Go to the Start menu, start typing “keyboard”, and open the Keyboard application. Go to the “Application Shortcuts” tab and add the “Super + d” shortcut to the command “wmctrl -k on“.

Xfce shortcuts

August 3, 2015 Leave a comment

Start -> Settings Manager -> Window Manager -> Keyboard.

Minimize all windows: Ctrl + Alt + D.

Update (20150806)
Under Ubuntu if you press the PrtScn button, an application starts that allows you to take a screenshot. How to have the same thing in Xfce? First, install the program xfce4-screenshooter. Then add a new application shortcut:

Start -> Settings Manager -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts tab.

Add xfce4-screenshooter and assign the PrtScn button to it.

Open the Start menu with the Windows button

March 27, 2011 Leave a comment


Under Linux, you can access the Start menu with ALT+F1. How to assign the Windows button to this operation?


Open System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. Under Desktop, find the entry “Show the panel’s main menu“. Click on the shortcut cell and press the desired keyboard combination.

Actually, I assigned the Menu button to this task which is next to my right Windows button on my US keyboard.
