"Windows key + D" should take you to the desktop (in all versions of Windows).

Windows Shortcuts.

I am using W/7 and if I press the Windows key and D together it takes me back to the desktop but whether that would remove the game I know not.

"Windows key + D" means that you keep holding down Windows key while you press the letter d on your keyboard

is that what you are doing?
