  • This is still two steps. No single step shortcut?

    I know no way. this worked since Windows 95.

  • Use AutoHotKey together with WinMinimize (http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/WinMinimize.htm). 

    For example, to remap the Print Screen button to minimize the active window, add this to your ahk script:

    $PrintScreen::WinMinimize, A

  • This might be an incredibly late response but, if it is one of the first windows in your taskbar, you can Maximize / Minimize the windows with WindowsKey + 1|2|3|4 etc.

    Ex: I always have my browser in the first position of my taskbar, so I always maximize / minimize it with Windows + 1.

    You need to know in which position is your window, but it is a one step way to do it. Hope it helped somebody :)
