The best solution would be to get on with some work, but that's far too sensible!
Windows + D minimizes all windows. Not alt + d.
Also, alt + tab lets you switch to another window quickly.
Right click the taskbar, click properties, and then make sure "auto hide the taskbar" is checked. This makes the taskbar disappear when your mouse isn't on it so your boss doesn't read what your window is right off the taskbar.
