Alt D has a drawback though. If you use it, your boss walks past and sees a blank desktop - and assumes correctly (though for the wrong reason), that you do no work!!

'Windows + M' followed by 'Windows + E' makes it look like you are searching for that file you were about to edit 😉
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.
What would really be great is if there was a "Boss" button which you could click that would send up an image of an excel spreadsheet. Once he walks away, you click on it and 'Voila' - your game is back on screen
