Is is possible to bind Win+D to minimize all opened windows (yeah, it's my habit)? Now I'm using Ctrl+Alt+D in Ununtu.

I've tried System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts, but Win key seems not working there..

Thank you.

Under System --> Preferences --> Keyboard Shortcuts you can change the shortcut for "Hide all normal windows and set focus to desktop" from Ctrl-Alt-D to Win-D.

If you have one or both Windows-keys already assigned as compose/meta/whatever-they-call-it-now you have to change it first under System --> Preferences --> Keyboard --> Options
