You can also configure it to toggle the desktop grid.

Great Job! It works great on Fedora 26 + KDE Plasma 10.
But sometimes If I try to click the button with the opened windows it does do nothing. It happened only a few times.

I have Linux Mint KDE 18.2. It happens that the program works correctly but always when I log in I must activate it manually from the options: Present Windows Efect, and, Show Desktop Grid Effect. Is there any way to fix it? Thanks. Sorry my poor english.

Hmmm. Is it persistent if you enable the effect via System Settings > Desktop Behaviour > Desktop Effects? Maybe my checkboxes are doing something incorrect.

[SOLVED] I just had to activate the services from the KDE setting: Present Windows, and, Show Desktop Grid. And then activate from the setting of your widget and is active every time when restarting the system. Thanks.

Could you add an option for Desktop Grid with the command "qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component.invokeShortcut ShowDesktopGrid"
