YaKuake is inspired from the terminal in the Quake game: when you press a key (by default F12, but that can be changed) a terminal window slides down from the top of the screen. Press the key again, and the terminal slides back.

It is faster than a keyboard shortcut because it is already loaded into memory and as such is very useful to anyone who frequently finds themselves switching in and out of terminal sessions.

I was using Guake but since it was not working fully within Mint 20.2 (for example, the Search function (Ctrl+Shift+F)), I uninstalled it and instead I'm using Yakuake, which seems to work perfectly.

Very quick and easy to bring up, has far more features compared to Guake. To get the correct animations the Cinnamon effects settings need changing

Excellent! You can use it like tmux. For save sessions with name tabs and open folders you can use this script https://bitbucket.org/eternicode/yakuake-sessions/overview
