LKBEN11482: Move your window in kde even without using the taskbar


you need to move your window but hate to position your mouse on the taskbar


This is a nice feature and easy to use if you know it. It can be used even then the taskbar is not on screen.


In KDE you can use the mouse together with the "alt" key on the keyboard to move a window. When the "alt" key is pressed, you just need to be somewhere in the window you want to move. This is easier then the positioning on the taskbar and can be used even when the taskbar is not on the visible part of the screen.

Sizing the window on the sides of the screen will still work.
