Windows Key for Mac Keyboard

At work, I use my MBP to access to Windows VM. Recently, I find s shortcut for access Desktop in Windows: Windows key + D. However, MBP does not have a Windows key. Quickly, I found an awesome solution from AskDeferent: Right Command + D!

This works beautifully, the corresponding Windows key in MBP is Right Command.

In addition to that, I also found a shortcut key to show and hide my Dock in small size: Option+Command+D.
