I know Win+M is minimize for all Windows, what is the shortcut for minimizing the current window?

Windows Key + Down and then Down Again (hold Windows key the whole time)

or Alt+Space > Down, Down, Down Enter.

or Alt+Space > N.

and Windows Key + D minimises everything

Win+M has an animation. Win+D doesn't.

Win+D is not minimize, it's show desktop. Do it a 2nd time and it takes you back to all windows that were open.
