Make Windows key + D show desktop on only 1 monitor?

So I have a multi-monitor setup, and I would like the windows key + D shortcut (show desktop) only affect my main monitor, is there any way to do that? Im running w7 x64 with all the windows updates etc installed. Alternatively if theres a different shortcut i could use or some utility i could run, any suggestions are welcome

You may try Display Fusion, to see if it gives you what you want.

yes display fusion is excellent i have been using it for a couple of months on two monitors it has a lot to offer worth every penny, i can press the win key and the start menu shows on monitor 1 only, there are many settings you can use and you can have a taskbar on each monitor :) go to this link
