Windows automatically suspends the app when it detects that its no longer in use and the application stops using resources.

However if you want to manually kill the program, move the mouse curser to the top center of the screen, The curser changes to a hand. Click and Drag the curser to the bottom of the screen to end the program.

Alternatively, you can use alt+f4 to end the program.

and lastly, you can use task manager or process explorer to end the program.

The keyboard shortcut Alt-F4 still works.
