[SOLVED] XFCE 4.10 Show Desktop command / hotkey

I just installed XFCE. I see that the predefined hotkey to show desktop is <CTRL>+<ALT>+D but I want to change to, or add, <SUPER>+D.
I did not find anything with google, only "old" threads that say that the shortcut can be changed on Keyboard Setting. If I am not worng, it is no more possible, or, at least, in my case is not possible.

If I open "xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml" under my home folder/.config/xfce/blahblah I can see:

<property name="<Control><Alt>d" type="string" value="show_desktop_key"/>

but using

<property name="<Super>d" type="string" value="show_desktop_key"/>

produces an error.
Other shortcuts with <Super> are working.

I think that I must invoke xfwm4 but I don't know how.
Thank you.

Reset/remove current shortcut:

$ xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/xfwm4/custom/<Super>d" --reset

setup new

$ xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/xfwm4/custom/<Super>d" --create --type string --set "show_desktop_key"
$ xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts  --list -v | grep -i super
