Don't almost any window manager has some way of doing this via a
shortcut. Inclusive those used by Windows and MacOS?

If you really have to do it from withing Emacs, you could call external
app like xdotool (if you are using gnu/linux):

M-! xdotool getactivewindow windowminimize
M-! xdotool search --onlyvisible --classname --sync emacs windowminimize 

You could wrap that in an interactive command and call it form M-x if
you prefer.
