Rdesktop -f is full screen, Now how in KDE to I toggle back to my desktop

I used Rdesktop in full screen and it covered everything.   Now the only way I can get back in control of my computer is to go to the windows terminal server and kill the sesson.   I need a way to "alt tab" back to my linux desktop in KDE.  

What is the keystroke ?

It is pretty clear after putting up a 500 point question that I am not that good at explaining   I have a full screen program ( rdesktop) that totaly covers my desktop so I can not get around it to get to anything else on my computer.   How to I get to my desktop  ?

Is there a way that full screen mode will not cover the bottom toolbar in KDE ?

You can minimize a full-screen window by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc (or left-clicking in the lower
right corner if you #define MAGIC_PIXEL before compiling).
If this is not working, then you need to patch the rdesktop to 1.0.0pl19.7.2 or 1.1.0.

You were 100% correct and I would love to know how you knew this.  I am going to close this but if you can tell me how you knew this and is there a way that I can make that come up that way every time it would be just grand.
