I don't have KDE setup, but gnome, Alt-F2 shows the run application 
dialog (in front) with your cursor ready to type. And then the app you 
enter eg gedit enter, is shown above all others.

Perhaps the difference is that the window is a dialog rather than a form 
(speaking another language I know).
