    I know there used to be a shortcut for this but I can't remember it. I know command+m minimises the current window. Looking for the Windows "return to desktop" equivalent.

    Command+Option+H+M is what you want.

    Thanks, I see that doesn't minimise full screen Windows, I remember there being a shortcut that was the exact equivalent of the Windows "return to desktop". I think it included an F-Key and it only required two keys, while the Command+Option+H+M is quite difficult I feel.

    System Preferences --> Mission Control --> Show desktop.

    With the trackpad, the standard gesture is to spread the fingers. See System Preferences --> Trackpad --> Show desktop.
