Is it possible to open a minimized Application in dock with a shortcut? Or maybe something like: Open last minimized Application in dock with shortcut?

This should do the trick:

  1. Navigate to the minimized Application by doing Command+Tab
  2. While still holding Command press Option
  3. Release both keys. Or just Command for that matter.

Yeah, the option button works well in this case :) – GedankenNebel Dec 17 '13 at 10:25
