Remove key shortcut for installing guest additions (Host+D)

Description

I cannot think of any situation where shortcut is useful. Installing the guest additions is a task you perform once only when VB is updated. It is not a repeating task that you need a shortcut for.

Instead I find myself quite often accidentally pressing Host+D when working in my virtual machine.

I find it kind of amusing that there is a keyboard shortcut for installing guest additions but for minimizing the virtual machine window,  there's  nothing..

Well, we added this shortcut by demand of other others. Perhaps you have the wrong key set as host key?

Regarding the shortcut for minimizing: This is the task of the window manager, so at least for X11 hosts this is not only a one-liner (like Host+D for the guest additions).
