    Alt+tab usually works, or i think Windows+M is minimize all programs or something

    Alt + F4, try it and it will minimize anything.

    You need a shortcut for pressing a single key? Geez, gamers sure are getting lazy these days!

    @Canuk & Peerzy
    alt f4 kills the program thats up - you dont want to use this
    try it on firefox now

    alt tab gives you an option to switch to whatever else is running (so you have to have atleast another prog up eg-explorer/a folder/notepad) + game
    although alt tab can crash your pc during some games

    What I was after was something to minamize the game I was playing,to be able to go onto the web for the missus,to look up what ever has taken her fancy at that moment,she doesn,t understand that just saving the game and starting it up again can be a pain in the arse(like diablo 2 and dungeon siege 2,where it restarts you back in town)I,ll give these suggestions a try,cheers.
