Just as a side note, you _can_ have F9 as the shortcut for the app. You would
have to type in F9 in the Shortcut window manually.

I was a heavy user of Yakuake as well up to a few years ago. Everybody loves
Yakuake and Quake style terminals.

I realized the reason I love Yakuake is not because it opens from top-to-bottom
with a nice animation. It's because I can assign it a quick global shortcut and
my mind can remember it.

So I used KWin's Special Application to give all popular apps their own
dedicated shortcuts:

F1 is Chrome
F2 is Dolphin
F3 is Kate
F4 is Telegram
F6 is KMail
F7 is Slack
F9 is Konsole

After a few years of using this setup, I'm pretty much sure that it's the most
productive workflow possible. All apps are always full screen and 1 key away.
And that key is saved into my subconscious that I don't even have to think
about it anymore.
