What is the shortcut to minimize/maximize current window?

You need to provide us more information to be able to help you. When you create a new post there is bunch of information there that described the information we need.

Which DE are you using?



Before you open a new help request, read relevant sections of the Arch and Garuda wiki. Thoroughly search your issue and any error messages in the forum and on the web.

Report everything you have already attempted to solve your problem.
Post your terminal in- and output from:

inxi -Faz

Without it, you will not receive any help from the Garuda team or your topic is likely to be closed without notice.

Other OS :thinking:

It all seems to be useless, even users who have been in the forum for a long time have no desire to search for something themselves or at least make reasonable statements about why they have not found a solution. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

meta+pg up and meta+pg down

The meta key depends on your keyboard. For me it is a windows button.


I have searched on google for the keyboard shortcut but couldn't find it. I even opened shortcuts from application menu but i couldn't find these keys there

Thank you for the help. It worked for me. How to find key combinations like these for other shortcut?

In system settings there is a section called "shortcuts"

I earlier tried searching at that place but couldn't find there

Please edit your post.

How and why you post this not directly?

You can either use that search bar on the right-hand side at the top, or click on those categories until you find it.

In this case, it is under "kwin"


I mark it solved.

Thanks for this detailed info

I didn't get this

Anyways, i am not as Geeky as you guys about the Linux. I am a normal noob user coming from Windows background but wanted to shift from there to linux to use new features and its look. These silly queries might be a matter of seconds for you but for noob user like me its very difficult to get answers so easily. I already spend sometime finding the answer by myself but as i said i couldn't find this so i thought maybe just by wasting time here and there may be I should ask the question to experts and continue to work on linux.
I didn't knew

I am sorry because i don't have much knowledge on linux and its forum as you guyz have. I am just a normal noob user and learner.
