I had luck at my old job with emailing the IT guy and explaining that there was a DIY site I liked browsing during lunch break for Cheese making, meat smoking and general DIY. Unfortunately it also covered alcohol so was blocked. He unblocked it for me. It's worth a shot. Luckily, my new job doesn't have anything blocked it seems.

My current job blocks for most everyone besides me, for some reason. My new job is at a homebrew store, so I'm not anticipating that.

It will minimize every open window to the tray. Fast and simple.

Hitting the "L" key will lock the computer which basically does the same thing.

No one has EVER seen what is on my screen by coming up behind me.
Neato. I'm more akin to the Alt-Tab function. You can easily do that one-handed.

I've found that proxy sites, and also a number of the remote desktop programs (such as Splashtop, which I use on my tablet to access my home PC's) are also blocked by my work's filtering software...

Just talk to your IT guys and ask them how to get on the undisclosed, unfiltered gateway/policy they use.
