Mapping the 'show desktop' icon to a key (eg. F11)

Mapping the 'show desktop' icon to a key (eg. F11)

I would like to map the show desktop functionality in windows 7 to a key like F11 or F12, would prefer it if i didn't have to download a 3rd party keyboard mapping tool. Can someone explain how?

Is this no longer mapped to Windows-D?

"According to this page and helpful comments:

Win+D, to show desktop.
Win+Home, to hide everything else than the active window (Similar to Aero Shake).
Win+Space, to just take a peek at your desktop."
