Hi, can someone tell me the command to minimize all open windows please?
I guess it depends on your settings but I think the default is either Ctrl+Alt+D or Meta(Windows key)+D

In Xfce by default it is Ctrl+Alt+D.
You can change it in:
Menu -> Settings -> Window Manager -> Keyboard tab -> Show Desktop option

Thanks both I was almos desperate looking for this, I did not even know that other keyboard configuration menu existed, I asumed that the setting > keyboard was the only and that one is very limited, I think this duplicated features should be removed in the future releases to make the OS more friendly, but anyways thanks again. 
I don't believe in anything, I'm just here for the violence.

The reason it's like that is because Xfce is modular, it's designed so that a user can easily pull it apart and just use parts of it if they want to. Those keyboard functions are the ones handled by the window manager component; xfwm4. The other "Keyboard" settings area is for shorcuts handled by the general Xfce settings daemon; xfsettingsd.

You can't - use Alt/Ctrl/Shift or any combo. Shit+Super+() or Ctrl+Super+() might work too.

Guys, I think those are not very efficient way to create keyboard shortcuts. This is how I do it:
Terminal Emulator: exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator
Web Browser: exo-open --launch WebBrowser
File Manager: exo-open --launch FileManager
Mail Reader: exo-open --launch MailReader
Why is it more efficient? Because instead of using the command to launch the specific application, we bind them with the configured preferred applications instead. So, for example you want to change your file manager from thunar to dolphin, you will go to "settings-preferred applications" and change it right? And when that happens, you don't have to change anything in the settings and it just changes by itself because the command is "to launch file manager" instead of "to launch thunar".
I hope this helps  ;)
