Or do you have to exit the game to perform other tasks?

Alt+tab is the basic function to minimize it, in a way.

You can also use alt+enter to toggle full screen.

Press Alt-Tab again. It cycles through the windows.

What Rin_ said, or just click on the icon of the game on your task bar.

Alt+tab can bring you back to the game again. It scrolls through running applications to choose.

Id say alt-tab, but that function has been broken since last patch, still screws up window sizes etc when you change back and forth. super annoying, but, it does the function.

This^^

 

Plus according to WG "support". They do not actually support full screen mode. I can find the quote from one of my MANY support tickets dealing with my AMD-ATI gpu issues.

I use a sweet little program that allows you to run just about any program as you're in a full screen setup.  But you're still in a "window" mode.  It's awesome!

Actually the Alt+Tab function broke in the 9.17 initial patch.  When they updated for the March of Nations events, they fixed it back to where it works again -- at least it did for me.  No resmod change, no OS updates, just the 'micro-patch' for March of Nations and I'm good to go again.
