Win+D is the keyboard shortcut for Show Desktop to minimise all windows. Win+D a second time brings them all back.

@simon - Dynamic compression is processing which reduces the quality of the audio. So as an example of how listening to lower quality audio doesn't mean we can't spot better quality audio I think the comparison is fair.
