              visible on all desktops. When you press Alt+` again, it will
              roll up and hide, waiting for your next press of Alt+`, when it

   WINDOW CONTROLS
       KP_0 or Alt + - (substract)
              Raise currently focused window.

       KP_. or Alt + - (substract)

              the titlebar and border and is maximized to the entire screen.
              Full-screened window cannot be lowered but can be iconified.
              Pressing Alt+KP_* on the full-screened window brings back the
              titlebar and border and resizes a window to it's previous size
              and position.

OTHER FUNCTIONS

       Alt + Home
              Move mouse cursor to "home position" - top left corner of the
              screen.

NOTES
       If you want to modify some bindings, the best place is to put them is
              ~/.fvwm-crystal/userconfig

       That file will be read at the very end of Fvwm-Crystal startup and
       restart. That way, your changes will not be lost after an update, and
       they will be read after all the other configuration settings.

       In case you want to reassign an existing binding to another key, the
       best practice is to unassign the old key and assign the new one. As
       example:

            Key grave A $[Mod1] -
            Key grave A $[Mod1]2 -
            Key Q A $[Mod1] QuakeConsole
            Key Q A $[Mod1]2 QuakeConsole

       will unassign Fvwm-Crystal binding (Alt + `) that launch the
       QuakeConsole and assign it to (Alt + Q).

       To reassign another function to an existing binding, it is just to
       reassign the binding. As example:

            Key grave A $[Mod1] MyFunction
            Key grave A $[Mod1]2 MyFunction

       will reassign the QuakeConsole binding (Alt + `) to MyFunction.

       The first binding is for use without NumLock, the second one is for use
       with NumLock (The 2 after $[Mod1]).

       For the signification of the modifiers, read the key and mouse commands
       description `man fvwm`, as well than the ouptut of

            less "${FVWM_SYSTEMDIR}"/components/functions/Keyboard-Modifiers

       when FVWM-Crystal is running.
