The default window manager provided by TDE is the Trinity Window Manager (TWin). Please refer to "Windows, How To Work Them" in the Trinity user guide for more information.
Are there keyboard shortcuts for TWin operations?
Yes. Please use to the Trinity Control Center (KControl), Regional & Accessibility-> Keyboard Shortcuts, for the list of available shortcuts.
Can I define my own set of keyboard shortcuts?
Yes. Launch the TDE Control Center and select Regional & Accessibility->Keyboard Shortcuts to configure window manager bindings like maximizing windows, etc..

With many X Window System GUIs, the minimize button (a little dot) will erase the window that the program is running in and create, instead, an icon on the desktop. TDE does not do this. Instead, when a window is iconified it is simply hidden (but the program is still running).
There are a few ways to access disappeared windows:
How do I maximize windows only vertically or horizontally?

Use the kstart command. As an example, to open KCalc with the Stay on Top option, use:
For maximized windows, use the
