[Resolved] Keyboard shortcut to minimize/iconify windows

After googling for a while found no answer.

I would like to create a keyboard shortcut to minimize/iconify an active window.

Alt+F4 kills the app being active at the time
Win+D will minimize all windows

How can I get Alt+F3 to minimize/iconify a window which is active?
This can be achieved by Alt+Space+N but it's to long and I would like to change this keybind on Alt+F3 since it is much quicker.

So far I have managed to add an entry in the rc.xml file for the Alt+F3 then N to minimize/iconify but what about minimizing straight away with Alt+F3


Thank you

Edit your rc.xml file and look for the section that begins like "<!-- Keybindings for windows -->" then add this:

    <keybind key="A-F3">
      <action name="Iconify"/>
    </keybind>

Save the file and the make sure to go to Openbox menu > Preferences > Openbox Config > Reconfigure.

@Prindoll:  Welcome to CrunchBang!  I see you've posted just a couple of messages, both of which are just rather generic "thank you"s.  This is fine, but how about participating in the forums a little more?  We have a whole sub-forum dedicated to introduction threads where you can tell us a little about yourself, a monthly screenshots thread in the artwork sub-forum, and several getting-to-know-each-other threads in the off-topic/general chat sub-forum dedicated to such themes as beer, food, whisk(e)y, movies, and mugshots.
