Shortcut to minimize all windows on OS X

Hi all, how do we minimize all the windows in MacBook Pro? I do not mean the 4 fingers swipe up because that doesn't really minimize all windows. What I want to do is to minimize all windows and keep 1 window open (in windows its simply Ctrl+D + click on the taskbar once)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You could create an applescript to do the task. Then simply add the applescript to your dock.

tell application "System Events"
    set visible of every process whose visible is true to false
end tell

Try that!

The fastest way to do this is alt-tab to the finder, then option-command-m

There isn't a single key combination to minimize all windows - option-command-m minimizes the windows of all other applications

No, option-command-M minimizes all windows in the current application. You're thinking of option-command-H, which hides all other applications. – Scott May 6 '11 at 11:06
Good point... he's right you know ;-) – Ross Little May 6 '11 at 11:29
