Windows 7: How do I create a shortcut icon for WindowsKey+M?

How do I create a shortcut icon for WindowsKey+M?

I know there's the button at the edge of the taskbar which shows the desktop. However, that button seems to correspond to the windowskey+D combination, and it ends up minimizing rainmeter too.

I was wondering if theres a way to create a shortcut icon which corresponds to the windowskey+M combination, which keeps rainmeter on the desktop.

I think he is looking for "minimize all windows" rather than "show desktop". But maybe I am mistaken.
