Hi, that doesn't seem to help on mine, on Win 8.1, for whatever reason.
Thanks though.
For what it's worth, I just did a test on the latest build for Manjaro/Linux (ver. 7.1.0), and even with all the bars hidden in full screen if I push the mouse to the top right corner of the screen a button pops under the cursor to go back to windowed mode. Can't test under windows or MacOS though.

Thanks Barry, very interesting.
Can you tell me a bit more about the tagging features please? I'm still using Lightroom and am very happy with it except it's a bit slow and I find the tagging is a bit awkward as it seems to assume that you only have a dozen or so tags whereas I have thousands! Best if I have a go with it I know but if it's not that great it may not be worth setting dK up and doing a proper evaluation.
Hi,
There are a few ways to assign tags;
I'm having trouble making a screenshot of the right-click menu, but one way is to right-click on an image or multiple selected images, and choose 'Assign Tag'; it will list the last 10 tags used, or let you create a new one, or choose 'more tags' (which will open the side bar at right, if it's not already open).

On the right sidebar (pictured), you can manage your tags, as a list or a tree. Tags already assigned to the pictures selected will show a checkmark next to that tag (see 'Autos'); if a tag is only assigned to some of the images selected, the checkbox will be gray (see 'beetle', ...).
You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to an individual tag. And you can type the first letters of a tag when in the tags menu, to jump to the matching tag.

If you want to browse by tags, you use the Tabs menu on the left:

You can also search on tags in the Advanced Search.
There are multiple options there; they work except searching a substring in the 'A tag of the item contains' does not seem to work; maybe that requires the MySQL DB instead of SQLite?

I haven't used Lightroom enough to compare it.

Sounds like a feature of your desktop window manager; doesn't work on Win 8.1.
Thanks

No, I don't think this is standard KDE behaviour. In fact I just checked with another DM (window maker), and it's exactly the same. So definitely a Qt library function, or maybe a KDE library function that should be installed on windows alongside DigiKam. But not a part of the Plasma DM itself.

Thanks very much Barry. I may need a small further extension to our UK Lockdown so I can install and play with dK a bit.
I used to use some home-made software that among other things offered a MRU list of a few hundred keywords, scrollable of course. I gave up on that due to the complexities of storing / updating tags in image and xmp files and moved to Lightroom. These different tools and techniques all have their uses depending on the context, i.e. if you're just tagging a few odds or catching up on the last few months!
Thanks for your help,
Mike
