I don't remember what it's called, but I just found myself in a situation where I could use it.


It's called KRunner, but you'll find the shortcut settings in

System Settings > Workspace > Shortcuts > Global Shortcuts > Run Command:

Where to find Run Command

Alt+Space is the default binding. You can also open it by executing krunner, e.g. in a terminal.

  • Alt+F2 also the default as you see. – Gannet Jan 4 at 15:08
  • @Gannet I think it is only default in Kubuntu. When I expand it, it shows None as default for Global Alternative and Alt+F2 as custom. – danzel Jan 4 at 15:13
  • Possibly you're right as I'm using Kubuntu and I didn't check any other Ubuntu derivatives with KDE. – Gannet Jan 4 at 15:17
  • Both Alt+Space and Alt+F2 work (as defaults) on Kubuntu (18.04). – Starbuck Jan 4 at 17:38
