Default Shortcut to minimize document

Is there a shortcut to minimize an active Word document (in a window opened with the "Windows in Taskbar" View option unchecked, obviously)?

How about a shortcut to minimize all documents?

I tried the macro Stefan Blom offered for this purpose (http://www.wordbanter.com/showthread...ight=minimize), but it breaks saying "cannot set the state of an inactive window"(I'm using Word 2003).

Sub TestMacro()
Dim w As Window
For Each w In Application.Windows
w.WindowState = wdWindowStateMinimize
Next w
End Sub


Thank you

You missed "w.activate."
Not getting a response on this site, I posted the same message to answers.microsoft.com, and Doug Robbins replied with the "w.activate" addition.

I wanted to delete my Wordbanter post but it's not possible so I provided the link to the solution.

The "duplicate" is because I posted the link twice by mistake (and couldn't delete it).
