How do I quickly minimize all windows to see the desktop in Ubuntu Budgie?

I tried Super (Windows)+D but nothing happens.

I’m using Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS.


The shortcut for this action might be disabled in your keyboard settings. But you can enable it.

  • From menu, navigate to PreferencesSettingsKeyboard or search for the "keyboard" keyword from dash.
  • On the right side you can see all configured keyboard shortcuts.
  • Scroll down and find the Navigation section and double click on Hide all normal windows.
  • There, you will be asked to map a key combination to the action. Press WinKey+D, then click Set.
  • Now you can toggle hiding and showing all windows using that shortcut.
