"Dolphin's Inline CLI

"This trick in particular is one I stumbled on purely by accident, but when I first saw it, all I could say was, "Whoa", because I immediately had a surge of ideas go through my head as to why it's so useful. If you're anything like me, you spend a fair amount of time in a file manager, and as a result, you probably juggle files around often, moving them from one spot to another, copying them, removing them, et cetera.

"If you're also like me, you use the command-line just as often in order to take care of tasks quickly, (especially to delete a file, since KDE can make that a very slow process at times). In KDE 3.x, there was always an option to right-click inside of a folder and open up the Konsole which would set you in the respective folder, but in KDE 4, that functionality was removed. Instead, this inline CLI was introduced, and all you have to do is push F4 when in a folder (the reason I stumbled on it in the first place is because I accidentally didn't hit the Alt for Alt+F4)."
