Option-Command-M

There you go! A whole list of keyboard shortcuts (including this one) can be found here:

Another method is to switch to the finder (either by clicking on the desktop or alt tabbing there, or another method) and then from the finder drop-down menu select "Hide Others".

the hide others command works better then the normal option command H

which just minimized windows in the current selected application.

so basicly there isnt anyways to minimize all windows. regardless of what app you are using

That only works in the application selected
what if you have 10 differnet apps open each with several windows

I want to be able to minimize all at the same time
