    You can add a widget to the panel called 'Show Desktop'
    Just unlock the widgets from right click on desktop
    click the small cashew icon in the far right of the panel
    select add widget
    in the search type: desktop
    Add the widget, move it to where you want it
    lock the widgets

    Usually if you click the close button it will bring up a terminate? box

    It may just take a brief moment to appear.

    If it doesn't go to
    Start > Applications > System > Monitor > System Monitor

    You will get a list of running applications, highlight the one in question and hit the Kill button. You can't kill root apps here.
