Trying fo find a command to toggle the kde task swicher

Hello Garuda users.

I'm trying to get the kde task view to toggle on and of from the command line,
so i can use the keyboard task switch button (it presses alt+ctrl+tab).
My solution is to use a custum script that wold work by opening the the task view and press the down button if the script is allredy runnig.
All I'm missing for this is a way to open task view from the cmd.

At the end i have included the output of garuda-inxi but i dont think it will by lots of of use for this question

A smal update, so solve this problem i made my own task swicher that runs in the the cli if anyone has a problem like this and this cli solution sonds good i have uploded that script to codeberg marvin1099/LinuxCmdTaskSwicher: This is a simple script i use with xbindkeys to swich between tasks with one keykombination that just swiches to the next task based on time that i was opened - LinuxCmdTaskSwicher - but i still take a solution that opens the kde task swicher that way i could see that window is selected and not just get notified with the window title.
